In happier times, the cousins and few remaining aunts gathered on the front porch steps of Granny's old house for a photo.
Howard and his family had stopped by, on their way back home to Iowa, from a Spring Break trip to Florida. Just months earlier, he had been diagnosed with Colon Cancer with a grim prognosis.
So many memories of this house, and the people who lived and visited there, are stored in the minds of the people gathered on these steps.
