Eternally in My Heart

Eternally in My Heart
Lord, grant Charles eternal rest in Your loving arms.

special reunion
two branches of our family
now so many gone

their spirits remain
sweet uncle, loving husband
pray you’re together

 if heaven grants that
a mighty fine poker game
is open to all

Even though a reunion is usually thought to be special. 
Looking backwards brings to mind the enormity of its value-
 thus it's cherished even more.

We recently lost my Aunt Mame at the ripe old age of 87. She was the matriarch of the family. It was certainly a sad occasion but it brought us all together for the first time in decades. I suspect we will be doing more of this as the older generation ages. It's rather a bittersweet way to see family.

yes, funerals are bittersweet, but I was so hapy that last month my sister-in-law, her children & grandchildren were able to come to celebrate oldest granddaughter's marriage (reception).

what lovely photos... so true - love the quotes. We do need to value every precious moment together. Your words about the 'mighty fine poker game' did make me smile!
