The importance of FAMILY

My 89 year old grandmother passed away a week ago. Actually, she would have been 89 on our shared birthday in August. We are rejoicing that she is in heaven now, but also wanting to remember her life. The day after she was put on hospice, two of my cousins and I went through book after book, carousel after carousel of slides, and put together a slideshow of her life. That slideshow, that collection of the moments in her life, has brought me to tears almost every time I've watched it.

Some of the pictures that I love the most are the group shots of the 19 of us cousins with our grandparents throughout the years. It couldn't have alwasy been fun to make us take those pictures, but I'm so thankful that they did.

This family below was gathered together for a special occasion, celebrating the graduation of one its members. I truly hope that they will treasure these pictures someday like I treasure those of my family!
