Christmas in Arkansas, 1968

Jeff with Aunt Pearl on first Christmas

We visited Rod's home in Newport, Arkansas for Christmas. This is Jeff's first Christmas at seven months old.

Pearl Bunch is Rod's father's sister and played a major role in raising him. She taught him in the fourth grade at school as well. The picture is in Aunt Pearl's living room. Aunt Pearl is 83 in this photo.

December 25, 1968.

Jeff parked in the middle of Aunt Pearl's long sofa in her living room. This was a special room at Aunt Pearl's when we were growing up - she always kept it nice, and the furniture seemed very elegant to us.
