2013 Roadtrip Traditions

Mini family reunion...

My father adored me.
He passed when I was only 24.
He suffered a long illness, we
lost him long before he passed.
It still pains me today.

In Randy Pausch's book, The Last Lecture,
he writes something like it doesn't matter
when you lose your parents, what matters
is that you know they loved you.

Monterey FDES 1944

My heart is still full.
Saturday evening, the Get Along Gang
was joined by
my two brothers, my oldest niece,
more like a baby sister, and
their families.

My great nephew Gabriel


  1. Looks like you had a fabulous outing. How adorable is Gabriel?!! Would love to squeeze him :))) Kiss him for me.
    Love you My Friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Love you back. My greats are probably as close as I will get to grand babies. So I have to enjoy every minute.

      Little Gabriel.
