In all our travels, I can't forget our main reason for coming to this beautiful state of Wisconsin which was to celebrate with family. And here is my sweet baby brother who exactly one year ago today was so happy and excited on this morning of his daughter's wedding. He reminded me so much of my dad in these pictures.
It is with a heart of deep and eternal gratitude that I thank God for his mercy in allowing this to be a wonderful day unmarked by any shadows of what was to come for it was only one week later that he made his first trip to the emergency room, which was to signal the beginning of his final walk up the mountainside to eternity.
So this day is for them. On this, his daughter's first anniversary, may his family remember today as a day of celebration and joy, and may we all remember that every day we have on this earth with our families is a gift from God never to be squandered but to be lived and enjoyed and then treasured in our hearts.
