Celebrate Life

Happy Earth Day, everyone! In celebration of Earth Day, I had planned to post about all of the lovely things in bloom in our backyard over the past couple of months. However, I have a heavy heart today because my uncle passed away suddenly last night, and I really don’t have it in me to write. So, I will leave you with a few photos that should serve as a beautiful reminder: Life is short so take a moment to stop and smell the roses (or lilac and honeysuckle). Celebrate Life.

Rest in peace, Uncle Rick. I love you.

This is the cover of a 1970 vinyl album from my uncle and dad’s group. Uncle Rick is at the bottom with the microphone and guitar (and my dad is at the top with the guitar and the hair).

      Thank you so much, Christine. I really appreciate it! And yes, that album is such a nice thing to have. I burned all the songs from the vinyl and sent my family the MP3s yesterday so everyone could enjoy his music again.

    It is still so surreal. Thank you for converting the album to a form that we can all shed tears to and smile at the same time. Love you!
