Saying Goodbye, part one

The goodbyes are beginning. With about ten days to go, we are finding ourselves saying goodbye to nearer and dearer people. Last Saturday, it was the Wilcox family. Dan, Beth, Hannah, David, Emily. My dearest friends, even though I hadn't seen Dan in fours years, and the rest of the family in eight. They drove to Grand Rapids from Manhattan Kansas to see us.

Sunday, it was most of my family, some who came in from Kentucky and Ohio. I try not to cry during these goodbyes; I just don't like losing it every time I turn around. But its getting tougher, and tears are starting to make it out of their safe little ducts. Here are some shots of the family, after that the Wilcox clan.
