My Uncle, the man whose life we celebrated, and who contributed to all the wacky family members we have. But that includes me too.
My cousin from California... her two totally hip kids, Roxy and Seth. I know they were thinking we were the biggest red necks from Illinois they ever witnessed. But we all fell in love with them as soon as we met them. We have grown up seeing pictures of these twins growing up and met them when they were little, but now they are both almost 21 and two wonderful adults. They didn't believe my Dad was the Easter Bunny, so he had to prove it. I'm not sure they were too thrilled to be 21 and still forced to get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny, but hey, welcome to your family from Illinois!!
So as you can tell, we had lots of laughs in the midst of sad times. We all had stories to share of my Uncle Delmar and life on his farm with my Aunt Pat and all 4 cousins. The younger kids would just laugh at us. Those are memories we will never forget and I'm thankful I have a family to share them with.
Prayers continue to go out to my Aunt and cousins. Lots of love from home.
