I'm an only child but I have a big extended family. My father was one of 7 children. We aren't close in that we keep in touch day to day, but we are there for each other when tough times happen. Everyone turns up for funerals which unfortunately we gathered for on Sunday.
In April I shared this layout of my uncle Fred. He was my aunt's (my Dad oldest sister's) husband for 72 years. He passed away last week just a few weeks after his 99th birthday.
So I'm thankful for the privilege of knowing Fred and having him as my neighbor for the last 25 years. His smile always made the day brighter.
And I'm grateful knowing I can count on my family.
Thanks for visiting today.
