The Importance of Family
My Aunt Mary came in from Arizona and my cousin Juanita flew in from Washington. I was able to pick them up and have them stay with us while they were here. I am so happy they did. We went up to Topeka to the funeral service and then down to Amorita for the interment. We visited all the way and got to visit with a large group of other Gerdes's and Hills as well.
On Saturday we thought about going out, but ended up visiting the whole day. I don't remember ever doing that before in my adult life. We just talked and looked at pictures and memorabilia the whole day. It was the best day.
All of the cousins are getting older and we are recognizing that we must find a way to keep in touch. Face book will be a help, but nothing can beat actually being together in person. Love your family.
