Uncle Paul

In loving memory of Paul M Cross
August 17, 1929 - March 18, 2010

Uncle Paul and Auntie Bet are 2nd and 3rd from the right in the back row

Uncle Paul was married to Mom's sister, Betty.  They married on his 21st birthday, the day before I was born.  I most remember him for his role as a "Crosket" -- the name we called ourselves (the Crosses and the Foskets) because of our closeness.  We were a family of eight kids and four parents who spent all the time we could together, camping, playing baseball, working, laughing, eating around an extended table.  On a campout we kids would fall asleep in our tents to the laughter of our parents playing table games around the campfire. We all share so many sweet and happy memories from those times together.
