Every year, the members of the Jaeger Family meet for our annual reunion at Fireman’s Hall in Brenham, TX. We humans are social in nature and benefit from interacting with one another. Reunions give us an opportunity to reconnect with family members we have not seen in a long time. We can share events and stories, reminisce about the past, and discuss the future. In this day and age of social media, it is easy for us to keep up with one another’s lives. But this digital connection can never replace the true connection that comes from seeing one another in person. An intentional effort must be made to keep families together, especially large ones like ours. Henry and Lillie passed away before we began holding regular reunions. But I am sure that if they were here, they would be pleased to see all of us laughing and hugging and having a good time.
