It only serves to remind me that our family is not only our roots, but also the limbs and branches that spring from us, the living and breathing individuals in our tree, and also, those not yet born, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren waiting in the wings.

At the time, I had two sons, two daughters, one son-in-law and one grandson. In the past three years, I have gained a daughter-in-law, another son-in-law, two more grandsons and a granddaughter.
Most of us who love to research do it not only for ourselves, but for those who follow, to be able to say, "This is who you are" and "These are who you came from."
And with the utmost pride and hope for his future, I introduce my newest grandson, born July 19, 2015, with perfect timing, as it was his deceased grandfather's birthday.
