Aunt Emily

Emily Bowyer Hammel was my father's older sister. She was the dearest person I've ever known. Over several adolescent summers, she patiently taught me how to sew and how to cook. I loved her. Sadly, she has been gone these few years and I miss her very much. However, I am carrying on her legacy of sewing and trying to carry on her legacy of caring.

My New Great Nephew!

My oldest niece had a baby last night. He is nameless at the moment, but she is leaning to Kalin. This is baby and mommy just after the birth.

October 21st, 8 pound 10 ounces.

And here is grandpa with the baby an hour or so later.

He was born on the 33rd anniversary of the passing of our father. So there is some sort of symmetry in that, isn't there??
