let the pictures speak

As I have been recovering from a multitude of celebrations and sorrow, I find myself at a loss for words. With the funeral behind us, there is a sense of some closure and family is still visiting to ease in the time when we are all left alone. The roar of the roller coaster wakes us in the morning and is still stealing some of our sleep. So, I thought I would post some happy pictures as that is what I am focusing on here at home. The Graduation of my niece Kelly took a back seat, but we all momentarily put aside our grief to celebrate with this beautiful, talented young lady. Some in my family say that Kelly and I resemble one another...What do you think?
My Niece Kelly graduated with Honors from Davis High School.
We had great seats and this ceremony always makes me cry.
Here we are making a sister sandwich with Kelly :)
Us girls sure do love our Marmie.
Angela loves her daddy J...and she is the apple of his eye...
...and she is the strawberry of mine.

Yes, Miss Kelly does resemble you! And your sister and you look so much alike people might confuse one for the other. Angela is also so adorable. All you girls look like each other! You have the prettiest smile ever in that pic with Angela!
