Shumway Family Reunion-June 28, 2014

It has been 7 months since my father died. This gathering in our homeland was the first time the extended Shumway family had been together since his funeral.  

I knew the day would be a tough one...for everyone.  But I hoped being with Dad's brother and sisters would bring some comfort to my lonely heart.  I wonder if my brother and two sisters feel like I seems unfair that WE are the first to lose both parents.

My husband Ron embraced his role as observer and photographer.  When he showed me the pictures, it confirmed what I had witnessed. My Dad lives now in the faces of those who love him.  His smile, his eyes, his voice, his mannerisms...they are all here.

Don't Want to Miss a Thing....

My first grandson, Jacob Quentin, is already 3 months old. I want to remember these days of magic and some of our best moments together so far.

I am almost afraid to blink...
