Our family gathered today to celebrate mom's 80th Birthday and mom and dad's 56th Wedding Anniversary. Though this was really mom's day, I carefully did not take any pictures of her. I would rather you all remember her as she was a few weeks ago than see her as she is now. I would like to give her that dignity.
Please pray that the Lord takes her gently by the hand and leads her home soon. SOON.
Dad and my sister Pam. This man is indescribable. If I tried to list here all that he does with grace, you would think I was exaggerating. The truth is, no matter how much I wrote I would be understating his true value. Those of you, my dear readers, who KNOW my dad please verify what I say.
Keri. Our beautiful first child and the mommy of our AWESOME grans.
This is Mackinley just after he stuck his finger in the cake icing.
