Yesterday my big family was all together for the memorial service of my Uncle Dennis. He was my mother’s brother and we all loved him– and pray for his dear wife Patti, who adds so much laughter and warmth to our family.
It’s times like this you realize, again, how precious your family is. I watched my two capable brothers lead the memorial service, my mother reliving memories of her younger brother. I saw my sister put her arms tenderly around mom at the end of the service, chatted with cousins I seldom see now. The older I am, the more I admire and love them all. So very thankful to have family.
