Hard to say Goodbye

 It was 7 years ago June 30 that my dad passed and this year on July 13 we lost my father-in-law, Jack. My in-laws live on a beautiful lake in Northern Wisconsin. Sunsets every night, boat rides around the lake and watching the Eagles overhead were just a few highlights of each visit. Spending time up north with family was always fun and many of the photos I took were used in some photo note cards I had made. When my father-in-law passed, my mother-in-law asked me if I would make photo note cards for her to use as her thank yous after his funeral. I was truly honored and knew every photo would remind each recipient of Jack and their lake home. I made just over 100 cards for her, praying with each one, for Jack, the recipient, and my mother-in law, Judy. These photos are just a few samples. We have so many great memories of Pine Lake visits; 32 years worth for me and more for my husband, Mark, and his family.  Life is precious and we don't know when our time here on earth will end. It makes me truly cherish my family and friends even more. I know Jack is smiling down on us all and we have another guardian watching over us. We love you and miss you dad!
