Family is a wonderful thing. If it wasnt for them, I dont know where I would be, they are my strength and support. Im very lucky for the one I have, including my extended family. They're not perfect, but no-one is, but compared to some people's they are golden.
But lately I have been thinking how some people can link a family together and when they are gone, some ties fade. It's sad that these things happen but it seems to be a fact of life. I have lost several members of my family over the years and with them went the links to some family members. Some which I made efforts to keep in contact, but without receipt, it went by the way. Sad as it is, there is only so much you can do, until it becomes a waste of your time and energy.
This week was the 14th anniversary of my mother's death and the news of a loss of another as well. Neither will ever be forgotten, my angels
