Dear Rachel,

Since it’s Throwback Thursday, I thought I’d post some archival Macy family pictures to cheer and entertain you.


Here’s a good place to start. It’s a picture I took of your family when I visited from Michigan in 1990.


We’ll jump around some chronologically. This one goes back to 1983 and was taken for the church directory.


Your pop took this keeper and named it “MacyThreeCleanedUp.”


I scanned these next few pics from slides of your parents’ courtship and early married years. Could be you haven’t ever seen them.


Isn’t this the coolest shot? Taken down in the basement of the church where your pop later served in ministry for 33 years!


From the look in her eye, I’m guessing your dad was behind the camera.




Buried in school work.


A graduate from Elmhurst College in Illinois.


A big day for your mom!


Shhhhhh. Baby’s sleeping. That’s you, of course.



You probably figured I’d have a series in this collection.

Had enough? OK, here are some more recent ones.



Getting ready then posing just before your wedding reception guests started arriving. Of course you had eloped to Jamaica weeks before this special event. Maybe I should do a post of only pictures of that night. It was so much fun!

Maybe just a few more . . . of your brothers.

Pete, John, Titan

They still love to sing and play, but they don’t have as much discretionary time as they used to have.

Feel better now? Sure hope so. Love you.

    Ahh . . . Rachel, our family was at your mom and dad’s wedding. I think we were in the balcony (maybe we had been late, probably, knowing us), however, it was exciting seeing cousins from each side of our family getting married. Sherry, you have found some great pictures to share, and I learned some more family history. Rachel, I didn’t remember you and John eloped! Our love and prayers to you, Rachel, John & Oscar. Cousin Leane & Bart

    Well done Sherry. Rachel should smile when she sees these awesome photos. Praying for her and the rest of the family.
