A Sad Day, A Happy Day

Today is sad because we are burying a wonderful man, Daddy's great-uncle Evo who passed away from cancer on the 18th.  We are thankful his body is now whole and pain-free with the angels, but sad that we will no longer see him this side of heaven. 

Here celebrating his 87th birthday this past July:

A day spent with Evo and Zia in August 2009

Playing peek-a-boo with Miss Em

I loved how his eyes lit up with such joy

We love you Evo and will miss you!

On a happier note, today is my dad's birthday and we will get to spend it with him!


  1. Beautiful photos....so sorry for the loss of such a great man in your life.

  2. Those made me cry Mindy! After we lost Brian's aunt last July I went through my pictures and found only one of her with Reagan. She was never able to meet our other girls. But that one picture? It's precious now. A treasure. Sorry for your family's loss, but thankful that eternity is a whole lot longer than our blip on the earth.

  3. Your photos of him made me wish so badly I had known him. His face is one of those that looks so friendly and kind. I'm so sorry for your family's loss.

    Hugs to you all and Happy Birthday to your father.

  4. Thank you for your sweet comments - I'm thankful for friends like you!
