One year ago today, our father passed away tragically and unexpectedly. This year has undoubtedly been the most challenging of our lives. The void cannot and will not ever be filled. Yet, what have I learned this past year from this experience and the experiences to follow? I believe all things happen for a Divine […]
Over the Thanksgiving Holiday, my family had a ‘first time’ family experience. Our life-long family friends, of over 60+ years, were celebrating a family wedding on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in Auburn, Alabama; we have participated as an extension of this dear family and their special celebrations for literally 60 years.
