I;ve been thinking about today;s date with a mixture of joy, sadness, and remembrance. Today June 26 = the last day of school here in Seattle, our oldest grandchild’s 19th birthday, and the date my brother died back in 1992.
I was living in Kenya back in 1992 and when the sad news reached me, I made arrangements to fly from Nairobi to Boston, and then proceed to New Hampshire and then Rutland Vermont for the funeral.
Here’s a picture of my brother in the 1950’s – he’s with our dog Duchess on Hill’s Pond in New Hampshire. Lots of nice memories there!
