I hope you all have the wonderful blessings of this Christmas season and have a bountiful, joyous, safe, and healthy 2023! We were fortunate to have my daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren come for Christmas this year. Charcuterie was the lunch of the day for my grandson’s birthday on Christmas Eve. May God bless you each and every day!

After a long time away from Oregon and Washington States, we went back for a Snake and Columbia River Cruise. It is hard to explain the natural beauty of that part of the world. We had a magnificent trip highlighted by that natural beauty. Words cannot convey how wonderful it is. It makes you feel that all the craziness of the world really doesn’t matter all that much!
My dear loving mother-in-law pictured with my wife to be in 1956 and at her 50th wedding anniversary. She left this world on Sunday for eternal life with God as she was destined to be from birth. No man has had a sweeter and more loving mother-in-law than me. Christina was cheerful, supportive, kind, and loving during the 49 years we knew each other.
She was fun, kind, but a killer at Pinochle and would not let you slip anything past her. I will miss her greatly as will her husband Ben, her six living children and her grand and great-grand children.
Christina was a woman of faith and I know that she is in the arms of God, ready to intercede for us. God bless you Christina. Your husband, children, grand and great grand children will miss you. Speaking for Elizabeth, Kim, Maricela, and me as in-laws, we will miss you as much as we miss a mother. You were that for us and we are grateful. Rest In peace dear mother.
