In this holiday week, we take the time to remember all things we are thankful for. For my family, this has been a difficult week. We lost a very special person last Friday and laid her to rest yesterday. Aunt Mae was the oldest of her sisters and the storngest women I know. I have always enjoyed visiting her family in Ohio. Fun was what the family ordered, and it was always there. The love that filled her house was endless, and it was offered to all! She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
As Thanksgiving approaches, I want to take the time to say that I am thankful for my family and friends. For the love that surrounds us and keeps us up when we need it. For the family that has gone before us and made us who and what we are today. Also, for my genealogy friends that are always there to help when we need it.
If it was not for my genealogy friends, there would be a lot of information missing in family files this year. I am eternally grateful for all of the help you continue to give on a daily basis.
Most of all, I am thankful that in this sad time, I was able to spend a few days with my Mom. She lives out of state and I have not been able to see her for the past two years.
