Family Memories from Susan Aud Sonders: When I think back to my Dad, I remember him standing at the stove late in the evening, preparing oyster stew. Even though it looked different and had things in it that were very white and slippery, I looked forward to this special dish of his. With a crust of bread, I can curl up with this bowl of soup and bring back my childhood.
My memories of my Dad include taking our long three week vacation each summer to Indiana. The long car rides with my siblings in the back seat- reading comic books and stopping at Smuckeys and Howard Johnsons on the way. Finally arriving and flying over the winding roads, around the corn fields. My Dad would laugh and go extra fast so we would moan and hold our stomaches. We loved it. He also took shortcuts-looking for that special home-made pie at out of the way truck stops-which always added time onto our trip. He loved his birthstate and his joy was evident from the moment he packed us in the car in the wee hours of the morning. . .he was going home.
