This month we were very sad because J's uncle, who we call Tio, passed away prematurely:( He is a wonderful person who was always very gracious and kind to our family. We love him and will miss him greatly. Because of this, our family took a trip to the place where he and J's mom grew up for the memorial. Although it was a very sad and reflective time, it was also very special for our family to be together in a place where J has so many fond memories of growing up with his family. We enjoyed spending time with family, riding the ferry over to the island where the family used to have a cabin on the water, exploring the downtown area, and eating yummy food!! We know that Tio would have been happy that we were spending time together, remembering him in a place that he loved!
