21: Christmas Togetherness is a very important ingredient to family life!
22: Christmas 2001 | The spirit of giving, particularly at Christmas, is one of personal fulfillment. It matters not the value of the gift; it is the thought of giving that provides the fulfillment. Our parents gave fruit basket to the older members of our community that had very little or no family. Mother would often bake pound cakes and fruit cakes to put in baskets. Even after mother past, daddy was still giving baskets until there was no one else to give too. | Daddy always went to Christmas sun rising service at church. This is way in the Christmas Day pictures he wears a suit and often kept his suit on all day long.

32: Dear God: My brothers, Ronald and Dana, whom I love very much, this is my prayer for them today and tomorrow. Keep Ronald and Dana in your arms, guild them and protect them. Help Ronald and Dana to live their life to the fullest and to gain all that life has in store for them. Please do not let them forget those in need. Please promote Ronald and Dana and cause them to excel above their expectations and our parents as well. Our parents embedded within them, life's expectations and what they expected of them. They are now the male leaders and the examples of our little family. Help Ronald and Dana to shine in the darkest places where it seems like it is impossible to love. Help them to rise above any darkness to see the light. Protect Ronald and Dana at all times, lift them up when they need you the most, and let Ronald and Dana know when they walk with you. Give them the memory to remember the teachings of our parents that might allow them to walk faster through faith. Ronald and Dana will always be safe while walking in your foot steps, the foot steps you placed upon our parents, the ones they used to teach us. Love you brothers! Stephanie Brothers, do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, if you are not willing to move your feet.
