|Kristen and Dane made this tree for me.|
The evening did end on a sad note, though. We got a call from my cousin. Our Uncle Bill passed away quietly yesterday. He was my father's younger brother--87 years old. He was a teacher, a school principal, a devoted husband and father of four children, a friend to more than one can count, and a man of deep faith. A good enough life so that even at the age of 87, one can say it was too short a time on the earth.
