Christmas 2011.

My favorite part of the holidays is spending time with people I love.
Last Christmas was the last day we saw my Grammy, as she passed away in her sleep later that evening after she left our family get together. One year to the day after her death, on Christmas, our entire family was together, which rarely happens, and we celebrated life. The memories of those who came before us, those who created and guided this big crazy family, inspire us today. It seems that there is always some piece of good news to celebrate, and this year was definitely no exception. It isn't that life goes on simply without those who have passed away, but that they created and nourished life in such a way that it thrives even without them there.
