A Breezy Day in 1971

Rummaging through old film footage I came across this snippet from Easter, 1971 at Moone Athy.

With the current Easter festivity still fresh in our minds it’s interesting to flash back to prior celebrations. There were, of course, many fewer participants back then. Careful viewers will recognize very brief snapshots of Lee Judy, John Harney, David Pentland Sr., Ed Fehlig Sr. (pinch hitting for Bob Dunn, away in the military). In addition, the Horton children (Tim, Connie, and Holly) have been recruited by Grizelda to help out. It’s especially fun to see Uncle Cal Sr, Aunt Delphine, and Aunt Grizelda on the terrace. Wonderful memories.

The Horton family continues to reminisce about those years. We noted the sad passing of Pat last November. Don and his family, many of them seen in this video, plan to come to Moone Athy this Saturday (9 May) to place Pat’s ashes here, where she and Don shared such beauty and friendship. They are in our thoughts and prayers…
