 Hi family,  I am ruby Kate's only son. I live in the UK. My mother gave me the inspiration and the basic knowledge to play the piano. My mother always  said that I would always have my gifting to fall back on. Well she was more than right. I spent a year in Evergreen with my Grandmother whom I love today as I did in years gone by! Thank you all for making this site happen.

Hi My Precious Family:

My name is Annette Bailey and I have been blessed to be the granddaughter of Anthony and Naomi Gross of Castleberry, Alabama. I am looking forward to meeting each and everyone of you. I have attended the family reunions in Buffalo, NY as well as the ones on the cruise ships but it will be such a BLESSING to meet my family that I never had the pleasure of meeting.  The blood that flows through our veins is from a generation of strong and proud ancestors that have made a path for us. It is our mandate and we would be remiss if we did not continue to make them proud. My prayer is that GOD will continue to invoke his richest blessing upon each and everyone of you as well as your family. Looking forward to seeing all of you in June.  Be Blessed and Receive your Favor from the Lord.

Hey Fam,

This is Kiki holdng it down in San Diego.  I am the grand-daughter of Mary "Easy" Gross -Chase, grand baby (although I am not the youngest I will forever hold that title) of Mrs. Ruby Kate Gross-Eddings, daughter of the contagiously fabulous Gwana "JoJo" Ajibola. It is certainly a honor and priviledge to come from a line of strong "Gross" women. 

Anyway, look forward to reconnecting and/or meeting you all.  Hope to see and talk to ya'll soon...

I am the proud son of Angeline Gross-Graphenreed-Dewelt and the never present George Daniel Graphenreed Sr. 58 presently and will be at the time of the reunion. I have a beautiful super-talented daughter Traci Graphenreed-Wilkerson (a precious gift with Sharon Hall-Graphenreed who is with us daily in Spirit) and two wonderful grandchildren, Aaralyn and Donavan. They are part of my reason for wanting to wake up every morning. Another reason is my amazing partner J. David Moore without whom the last few years would not have been possible. There are not enough words I can say to thank David. So that's who I am. Oh I forgot, I have been blessed to be in show biz since 1974. I had a Broadway hit at 24, do you believe that?? Didn't see that coming. LOL... I have traveled alot in my earlier years, performing all over the world. Now I travel mostly to St. Croix to train their Youth with the extensive musical theatre knowledge I've been taught throughout the years. I ain't rich moneywise but I possess great wealth, knowing that God put me in a position to affect lives for the better, doing something I love to do. And I am an EXTREMELY HAPPY and GRATEFUL person. Oh and I play piano. And write and sing and arrange and orchestrate and direct and stage and…….well that's enough. LOL.... Oh and if you love to laugh at life like me, introduce yourself. If you're grumpy.... You can say hello but let's not hang, ok? LOL... See ya'll next year!!

Hi Everyone! I am very much looking forward to this family reunion you just don't know!
