Stone Soul Pic­nic

Melvin Cross hosted a “Stone Soul Pic­nic” at his res­i­dence on Pos­sum Court in Capi­tol Heights re­cently. This was a beau­ti­ful, sunny Satur­day, just right for a day for fam­ily, friends and neigh­bors to come to­gether for a good time. And, there was plenty of a va­ri­ety of foods and drinks. Mr. Rick Snow­den, who flew here from Dal­las with his wife, Pa­trice, who is Melvin’s niece, was help­ful with the meats for the pic­nic. He put his spe­cial touch on the spic­ing of the meats that were en­joyed by ev­ery­one. There was short ribs, pork ribs and beef ribs, chicken, hot dogs, and ham­burg­ers — all cooked on the grill. Pa­trice was ac­tive in the kitchen the day be­fore the pic­nic mak­ing po­tato salad, mix­ing in­gre­di­ents for the veg­etable and fruit sal­ads. And, there were sev­eral kinds of baked beans, even some with meats in them. The ta­ble was full of breads and, of course, desserts, a va­ri­ety of cook­ies and cup cakes.

Rel­a­tives came from nearby Prince Ge­orge’s County and far away — Leonard Cross from Raleigh, N.C., Varella Cross Bruce with her hus­band, Tony, from Philadel­phia, De­siree Cross from Bal­ti­more and Caron Wil­liams from Texas. This was a chance to talk about the good ole times when they were young chil­dren liv­ing in the D.C. area. Some of the peo­ple went to The First Baptist Church of Dean­wood on Sun­day where Pa­trice Snow­den sang a solo with the choir un­der the lead­er­ship of mu­si­cian Kim R. Ross. And, Melvin gave his tes­ti­mony as he thanked the pas­tor, the Rev. Ron­ald K. Miner, and the church fam­ily as well as his fam­ily for their sup­port and prayers.
