As many of you know my son’s family is going through an excruciating and in too many ways impossible to understand time. It’s very hard for those of us close to it to not constantly think about it as we pass through these days and nights. That is soul crushing, so we must find other things to think about. I choose my entire family.

Something about myself. A girl named Brenda asked me to dance to this in junior high. My first and last dance.
White Sox 8 Orioles 6 | Yankees 11 Blue Jays 0 | Phillies 14 Marlins 2
Chloe has done great in school and is looking forward to college. Her younger brother Mason is also doing well. And they’re doing well in spite of having had to switch schools several times. Most importantly they are both kind and considerate.
Mets 8 Red Sox 0 | Tigers 5 Indians 4 | Athletics 2 Rays 1 (F/10)
Britt devours books like I devour ice cream. Plus being around her is just plain nice. Will is a pill. He has a great sense of humor and if he’s around you can count on there being some fun going on.
Braves 10 Nationals 5 | Dodgers 3 Cardinals 0 | Cubs 3 Reds 2
Christine must have rubber bands in place of muscles. She can perform gymnastic feats that would put me in the hospital. Like all of her cousins she is kind and considerate.
Brewers 7 Pirates 4 | Diamondbacks 4 Astros 2 | Royals 8 Twins 4
Hailey shares Christine’s gymnastic talent. Just watching the two of them doing their flips, stretches, leaps makes me dizzy. Hailey lost her mother in her first year of life but that has not stopped her from also being kind and loving.
Mariners 5 Angels 0 | Rangers 4 Padres 0 | Giants 2 Rockies 0
I used to sing this to Eric’s cousin Ralph when he would hold me in the fall and winter of 2015.
Now it’s everybody else’s turn. Let’s hear about your kids, grandkids, siblings, parents, grandparents. Even if they’re gone, everybody got somebody.
