A family tradition

Life Story Club Contributor

My parents passed away early in my life. So my wife’s family has a tradition where they do family reunions. The family reunion is about 60 years now, it’s based in North Carolina. We used to go there every year to North Carolina. We would go to a park, maybe 60 to 70 people come to the park from different parts of North Carolina. They would cook barbeque food for everyone, and it would be very nice. Now the family is breaking up, so it’s not as big as it used to be. That’s a tradition that I really stick with and really love. I just enjoy it very much.

My name is Carl Parker. I was born here in New York, Spring Valley, New York. Then my mother and father moved to Oakland, California. My mother passed away down there. I lived in Oakland for a good little while, from 1 to 13. I remember living in Oakland for a while. I grew up there mostly. Then I came back to New York. And then my sisters and brothers moved back to New York. I enjoyed moving around to different places. I enjoyed growing up here in Queens. I was in Queens and I grew up there. I went to junior school there, I went to high school there. Then I came here to Brooklyn shortly after that. And I came here to Brooklyn, and I met someone. We had a child. And my daughter is 37 years old. My oldest daughter. I have 3 girls and 1 boy. And I’m grateful today that I live in Brooklyn, and mostly all my family is not in New York. Most of all my family is in Washington D.C. I’m grateful that I’m here. I’m just blessed that I’m here. Thank you.
