Happy Sad

After the funeral Mass for my sister-in-law, the family and friends gathered for dinner and pictures.



and the rest of the family.


Duane,  (my) daughter Rachel, (very bad picure of ) me.


My siblings and me in age order.


Various family members, spouses, children, and friends.




While we celebrated Paula today, we also mourned the passing of my Uncle Paul who died this morning.  He was 99, but determined to make it to his 100th birthday in Sept.  I was planning on seeing him on Tuesday when we moved south, but pneumonia and congestive heart failure got the better of him.  Now we will be visiting him Tuesday, but not the way we wanted.

The Circle Of Life.

Oh gracious girlfriend. So very sorry to read about your Uncle's passing. 99 is nothing to sneeze at!
I think Paula would be very happy about how y'all are smiling. She would want a happy celebration of life. I hope I get the same.
