Years fly by, wrinkles deepen, hair lightens, details grow fuzzy – family members pass and new ones are added

Addresses accumulate, along with photos and possessions, but it’s these faces I treasure and the stories they tell

Smiles, laughter, talking, listening, remembering – maybe hearing for the first time something that finally brings understanding; a new perspective

Life shared in a family, relative to relative – one generation to the next, how beautiful to watch it grow and mature. Each building on the experiences of those who are older

May God give us grace to learn from the ones gone before, never forgetting their lessons but wisdom not to repeat their mistakes
