The Burgon Cousins Annual Party

The Burgon uncles and aunts and many of the numerous cousins met this afternoon at the BYU Skyroom (where Shauna and Robert had their wedding reception forty years ago). Among the Burgon clan, Shauna's father Marv has passed away as well as his older sister (who would have been 100 today). The surviving aunts and uncles are quite fit and all in their eighties. Stan, Bea, Grant, Beth and LaRae reminisced about their parents, Shauna's grandparents. We sang happy birthday to uncle Clive, who turns 89. We drank BYU punch (7-Up and cherry juice) and had a wonderful meal! There has been very little cancer in the Burgon family and no breast cancer. A new study last week in the New England Journal of Medicine links alcohol consumption with cancer. The LDS word of wisdom works!
