    My family is gathering one more time for a funeral. Never easy.
    Never what we want to do.

    She was only 28 years old, and leaves three young children behind.

    No ideal yet as to the cause of death. She was simply found dead at
    home after failing to make her usual "check calls" the other morning.
    Yes...because we care about each other, you can pretty well bet on
    calling/ being called during the day from some member of the bunch.

    I remember when she was born. Remember when she graduated, got
    married, her children being born. Her whole life....a short 28 years.

    And we gather once more.

    I would ask that even as you remember this family...please take the time
    to tell those you love, that you really love them. For there is no promise of
    one more day, one more hour, or one more minute, for any of us.
