My Family…………..

These events and people led me to the here and now. Without them I would not exist, yet they might not be perfect and we tend to be a little crazy. In the end this is my family and if it was not for my ancestors that came together, fought for what was theirs, and built the two families that ended up uniting as one….

I would be lost without these people today that I call my own …..

These people are FAMILY!!!
