Well, this may be the winter that never was, at least if decided by the amount of snow on the ground. We have seen few and far between snow storms here in New England. BUT, the month of February is upon us and so, we have cousins birthdays to celebrate!
Aunt Esther’s family will start us off, with Julie Ann Lochner Riber celebrating her 60th—joining several of her cousins into this elite category. Her brother Richard John Lochner, and Brian Michael Lochner (Ted’s son) also celebrate this month.

In Uncle Harold’s family, Ann’s two children, Jessica Rose Catherman Rooks and Elliot Ryan Catherman, Judy’s daughter--Mallory Ann Alberts, and Abigail Elizabeth Hauf (Kathy’s grand-daughter) all blow out candles this month.In Aunt CB’s family, Susan Ethel Kinsella and Takeshi Sakanishi (Beth Kinsella’s husband) have February Birthdays. Takeshi will blow out fifty candles, so we welcome him to that milestone (a mere youngster in this writer’s eyes!).

In Aunt Phyllis’ family, Wendell E. Henderson ( Phyllis’ son) would have been seventy years old this February—we so wish he could have been here to blow out his many candles.
