Double Birthday Day - Dad and Aunt Betty

Today I celebrate the birthdays of my father, Thomas Raymond Coughlin (1944-1998) and his sister, my Aunt Betty, Mary Elizabeth Coughlin Braunstein (1940-2004).

I found this photo of Aunt Betty "feeding" me.  Yeah, family gotta love 'em :)

And here's one of my father during a visit to Stone Mountain Park, Stone Mountain, Georgia in May 1995.
On the back I wrote (courtesy of my (step) paternal grandmother's, Helen Torrance Coughlin, training!!) ... "Dad - thinks he's important!"  Maybe because he fought the lawn!!

Happy Birthday Daddy and Aunt Betty!!
