Still in family mode...

Here's a couple pics we took while all the family was in this week. My brother Donald left last night and this is the first day without my family. I'm feeling sad and needed these pics to cheer me up. I heart my family!

Me and the kiddos.

Here's a pic of me with 2 of my 3 brothers. I know it's not the most flattering pic of any of us, but any pics of us together are so rare and I just adore my brothers. The brother on the left is Donald (from California), and John is on the right (from Georgia). Not pictured is my oldest brother Tommy who wasn't there because of this weeks sadness. (See post below)

Love you big brothers!

In Loving Memory

On September 7th, my 23 year old nephew was killed on his motorcycle. This week has been crazy with all of the family that came from out of state and the funeral and such. I made this shadow box which was displayed by his urn at the funeral.

Kevin was a very handsome guy with such a thirst for adventure. He had many friends and tons of family that loved him deeply. There is not a minute of the day that I'm not thinking of him. His Dad is my oldest brother and my heart is heavy with his pain.

It is times like these that humble you and remind you to take advantage of every second with all of your loved ones. You just never know when it will be the last time you see them. Had I known, I would have hugged him harder, told him how proud I was of him and most importantly, told him how much I loved him.

I urge you all to take a moment today to tell those you love how you feel.

Goodbye Kevin, you will be missed more than words could ever say. I love you.
