(re) UNITED in LOVE

July 14, 2009

This past week our Uncle Butch died unexpectedly. It has been an emotional time as we try to deal with 2 deaths in our family within 6 weeks. My "other" mother and now her brother. But through it all, we continue to draw strength, gain comfort, rekindle relations, continue to love and remind ourselves that life is so very precious and to live every moment to it's fullest. This past weekend, we enjoyed rekindling our relationship with our cousins. It was a wonderful time spent together laughing, talking, catching up with each others lives. It was a wonderful night that ended all too quickly as no one wanted to leave. So through the sadness and grief we have gained a new sense of family... a family united in love. Love you guys!
