It was the first time in six years that they were all together. The Albans, now living in Virginia, were visiting family in New Jersey. The McKeons came from their home in Pennsylvania and the Brollys came from New York with the Cartys. It was a lovely opportunity to create more warm memories within treasured friendships.
