Our family reunion was on the tails of camp. We drove to my late grandparents home to stay with my mom and my aunt. We attended the reunion and memorial services for the 4 members of our family who passed since last year.
During the business meeting, we decided to go hi tech. One branch of our family has a website for chatting and keeping up with each other. They opened that site up for all the family to enjoy. Can't wait to see how it works. Another collective decision was not to have the reunion in 2009. We will probably have another reunion in several years but not in Bluffton, OH.
It felt funny to be meeting as a family without my grandparents but that's just how life is sometimes. It will be different with time.
