Today would have been their 57th Anniversary. We miss them dearly. Every holiday except Thanksgiving we would celebrate. After all, their home was our focal point. The home I mentioned in Day 2, was similar to their home. There was a pool and and game room and a huge family room. The kitchen was designed ahead of it's time back in 1960. It was open to the family room! My children grew up enjoying all the holidays here.
Speaking of spirit...Ray and Grace were two people who were always the life of the party. In fact, they were the party! They lived life to the fullest and I am glad to have known them until they passed.
So Ray and Grace, as I remember you today, I am thankful you made me feel welcome in your family. I never felt anything other than being your daughter and I am glad you got to spend many wonderful years with your grandchildren.
