And we said goodbye

We buried lola on a Sunday. It was a nice breezy day. The sun was out and I'd like to think that was her way of saying good bye.

My brother and I decided to tinker with our new camera. Cemeteries can be the most beautiful of places. There's a quiet peace that makes me think of how our dearly departed are finally resting free from hurt or pain. I know for my lola, it's that way.

It was also a time to celebrate life. I think lola would have loved having the family all together. 

My brother and I. Yes, I now see the resemblance. I've been denying it for years.

My cute cousin Chrystel. She doesn't look it here but she's a tomboy. Crazy hyper on steroids!
