We also said goodbye to another member of our family.
On December 28th at 6:00pm my cousin, Shelby, married Joseph Hennessy and he became an offical part of our family.
On December 24th at 3:00pm my beloved Petepaw left his earthly family to be with his heavenly Father and the other members of his heavenly family.
We laughed, we cried a lot but over all, we celebrated life. A life well lived and the beginning of a new stage with two people. It was hard but in the end we made it through stronger and closer. Please pray for my family during this crazy time especially my Grandma as she is trying to move on alone (yet not alone) and my cousin and her husband as they start their life together. They started off this week in a rough situation but, like one of my other cousins and I agreed, if it had to happen to one of us, it needed to happen to Shelby and Joe. They're the only ones who can go through this and come back out closer to not only themselves but to God as well.
Welcome to the family Joe! We love you and are happy to have you be a part of us!
Goodbye Petepaw, you are greatly missed but we know that you are in a better place now.
