Saturday was the memorial service for Joseph's younger brother Tommy. He lived with his family for over a year, and packed a lifetime of living into that year. When he was in the orphanage he basically lived in a crib. Tommy was 17 years old and this photo was taken this summer.
Sunday was a going away party for Emma, at our church.
She will be attending weddings the next two Sundays before heading on vacation then school, so this was the only Sunday to do it.
Aren't they beauties? Fun, precious girls who look awfully cute in their glasses!
It was very precious to have some of the men and women of the church pray for Emma. She knows that she is dearly loved and appreciated.
She'll be missed.
