Family Gathering, by Nicky Johnson
Finally, everyone was together under one roof. Besides wearing an overpriced suit, Thomas was elated. The subtle man was a gracious host; even little Jenny told her mommy how pleasant he looked. He didn’t point out that they were all invited to Sunday dinner each week for years. He didn’t mention that during every telephone call, he asked to meet his great granddaughter. He didn’t remind them that he tried to organize every holiday, to no avail. He didn’t say anything at all...as each one passed by his casket.
