A Legacy

The recent tragedy that my family suffered has resulted in a buzz of communications among our family members. Phone calls, emails and blog comments are uniting all of us in our grief. We are connecting in a way that hasn't happened for years.

I think Danny's death has reminded us that we are all linked. We are all linked by blood and love. Together, we ARE a legacy. We are the legacy of Sam and Ione and we are strong.

Sarah, my mom and I will be flying to Kerrville, Texas tomorrow to join or family in remembering and celebrating Danny's life. We will all draw strength from each other and we will renew relationships.

Thank you Danny for giving us this beautiful gift!

Tina, I'm sorry to hear about your cousin. I love the picture of the sun and the fact that you have someone to appreciate each day with you and you took the time to do it yesterday.
