|When My family came to visit Ashland, Oregon where I was in College|
and a month after we graduated from college in Ashland, my Mom's mother died. I didn't like this part of family. The losing ones you loved part hurt.
|My Brother and parents at Niagara Falls|
but all too soon my Dad, who loved being a Grandpa, was dead of esophageal cancer, as was one of my cousins. My Mom and brothers were changing and moving on, and we heard from them but didn't get to spend enough time together, and family expanded to take in a Day care Grandma and day-care babies who lived with my babies from 7 AM to 5 PM every day and were more like siblings than friends.
