1: Whether a family is bound together or scattered far apart, Loved ones from the past and present are always in our heart. Legacies of love and pride are passed down through the years, Journals kept of triumphs, tragedies, and tears. Tales of great joy, sacrifice, and sorrow can be found, Character traits, personalities, and likenesses abound. Families give us history; roots tied to our past And a heritage that’s honored is one that’s sure to last.
2: Emails started it all... | "We had a party at work on the 24th and everyone was talking about their holiday plans and asked what I was doing. I told them the whole story and they were very happy for me. I then said "she just had a son in August". Then there was this pause.....................and everyone smiled, "so your a grandpa too!" Yes! and I love it. It is such a warm feeling to say "my daughter" | "I'm not sure what kind of contact you are looking 4. Email? Phone call? Meeting in person? So I thought contacting you through email 1st would be the best so neither of us were caught off guard"
