It has been a long time since I have last blogged.  I guess I have not been taking as many pictures but also life gets in the way.

In early December, the family went down to visit Mr. D (or Papi as Laura would call him).   We thought we would see him before he passed but that was not meant to be.  Mr. D passed away on Dec. 5 from cancer.  We arrived in Florida for his funeral.

Laura got to spend some time with Janise.

The funeral was beautiful and a wonderful tribute to Mr. D’s life.  He was truly a giving and an incredible person.

The time was bittersweet.  It was good to see family and spend time together but with heavy heart.
