Cast of Characters

Five adult children in a family find it difficult to all get together at the same time. It took our father's death to bring us together for the first time in 25 years. All except Caretaker were at my wedding to Taciturn in 1998; his boss would not give him the time off. That was the last time most of us were together with our parents. Caretaker is still kind of bitter he was not allowed to attend.

Anyway, clockwise from the bottom are Youngest, age 42; Law Enforcer, age 46; Caretaker, age 49; our brother who is disabled by Parkinson's (can't figure out a nickname), age 50; and me, still 51 when the photo was taken. I don't think our mother ever recovered from having three children in three years!
