Christmas 2004 - Photos

Grandpa received many gifts for Christmas but the greatest was that his children and their families wanted to all come to his house for the holiday. And grandpa was engulfed in love. I am sure that Grandma was pleased as well.

Merry Christmas .

Some family is scattered by physical distance - Some by circumstances ~ or both.
But ... we are family ... we are friends. 

Here are some photos that came with cards this Christmas.

And may we, in turn, 
spread it to all the world.
