Easter was always the time our family gathered in North Carolina for a family reunion. Family from all parts of the country would make a special effort to attend the Ratledge family gathering in Clemmons, NC.
We haven’t been there recently, in 2007 we lost Ray followed in 2008 by my beloved sister Bert Giles, then my brother Al Ratledge departed soon after. Bert and Al would always host the event and open their houses for all of us. It was such a happy time.
Blessings to everyone this Easter.
