I realize we didn't spend enough time with Allan's Mom and Dad, and Les. There should have been more visits! And definitely more phone calls. Allan was really great about calling his dad. They spoke quite often. I didn't do a very good job calling Les. I found a little folder that all the pictures that Les used to have on his piano--that's where he kept all the important pictures of his family. When I would go and visit, there were the latest pictures of all our kids and grandkids. When he died, I took all of them off the piano and brought them home along with the ones he had put away--to replace with the newest one I would send. I also found a valentine he had saved from Heidi.
A word from the not so wise: Don't let a moment pass you by!!!
A few fun pictures from days gone by:
At a family reunion in 1986--there aren't enough of these!!!!
I can look at some photos and be back there in a moment. I sure hope I never lose that ability ; )
