My grandmother always said every picture tells a story. This one certainly does. A group of my family members get together each year to celebrate the life of a loved one that has passed away. These are first cousins and my brother. We realize how fragile life is and that time spent with family is valuable. Sometimes we get really loud. On occasions we shed tears. We give second chances. We have fun. We give hugs… but most importantly we love and from the bottom of our hearts realize that families don’t have to match. Hug those that you call family extra tight today!
