Our Next Reunion

Every summer we would see Aunt Verna in Kutztown park for our annual Spohn family reunion.  She always made treats like peanut butter chocolate cake and watermelon.  Pappy wanted us to keep the reunions going, which Verna ensured.  We look forward to the great reunion in Heaven with all of us - Pappy included!
