For a period of about three hours in July of 1986,
the entire Rueters family was present at the same time
on the family farm in Belm, Germany.
Ingrid and her family had stopped by the family farm for a few days
and were leaving in a few hours, and we had just arrived.
By chance, Thea, Lisi, and Hans, also stopped by to visit.
We suddenly all realized this was the first time since our wedding
that we had the entire Rueters clan, with all living descendents,
together in one place, so we ran outside and took a picture.
