Hal Schoetler Family - circa 1949

Front row: Judy, Loretta, holding Mary, Hal, Harold
Back row: Tom, Jim and Dave

Harold, Jim, Tom and Mary spent a lot of time together these last few days in Madera, surrounded by large groups of family and friends and alone. Time to talk. Time to remember. Time to just be together.

In this picture David is the youngest boy - he grew to be the largest - over 6'4", laughing and loving - a big man - a presence.

Lovely family. I didn't know Jim had so many siblings.


Big famly. Any family gathering, happy or sad, is a reunion with hugs and kisses and laughter as well as tears. Hal, Jim's father, was one of six and they ll lived in Fresno area and raised their own large families there. Jim, is one of six. We live on the East Coast and Harold lives in Los Angeles - all the rest in the home town area. Now there are lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren.
