LOTS of posts

Okay, so I've posted about 12 posts. Please comment on any and all. Holing up as I am, I do enjoy your comments. I'm emotionally drained from a day of journaling and going through pictures and posting. For it to make more sense chronologically, scroll way down and work your way up as you read the posts or use the menu to the side on the right. Anyway, enjoy.

Since I clicked into your blog from the foley family blog, I show up as 'Mom' on all of my comments. I hope that isn't confusing for any of your friends and family who read them. Someday I'll figure out how to have a different identity when I'm in Sushi and Pizza. Until then, 'Mom'= Vivian :)

Thank you for sharing these pictures and thoughts. I enjoyed seeing your family again and reliving the memories of meeting your Tia's, uncles, cousins and more cousins and relatives. They brought smiles to my face. I was touched by the pictures of your Dad. Seeing him again, even though he was in such fragile condition, brought back so many wonderful memories I had of him during the short time I knew him and the even briefer time we spent together. I will always remember his kind and thoughtful ways. Always making sure I was taken care of. He introduced me to his favorite restaurant in Fall River, we shared enjoyement in watching football together and most importantly sharing the grandchildren. I'm glad he got to be around his grandson and get to know him. It was nice to see all his grandchildren were able to attend his funeral. I'm sure he was pleased to see that. As time passes your wounds will heal and your memories will focus on the sweet and tender relationship you had with your Daddy.

Love, your father-in-law,

Gary

I'm sure it was hard to get through all that, but hopefully somewhat fulfilling now that it's done - if not yet I'm sure it will be in the future. It's neat to see your big crazy inter-related ( ;p ) extended family all being there together supporting each other! Hopefully someday all these memories will bring you peace rather than angst.
