A Great Loss

On Monday, my entire family came together to celebrate the life of our cousin, Michael. He was loved dearly by all of us and I can't even put in words how much he will be missed. He was a kind, loving and gentle person who had the most infectious laugh I've ever heard. This was the first time in a few years all of our cousins were in the same place together. We came from near (Albuquerque and Dallas) and far (Korea, the Netherlands and England) and Michael would have absolutely loved having everyone together. Of course the loss of a family member is difficult, but it was nice to be together to comfort each other and share memories. Though Kennedy won't grow up with Michael, she will always know who he is and the wonderful person he was.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss Amanda, prayers!

  2. What a beautiful photo . . . it made me cry, but also brought a big smile to my face. God Bless.
