Our extended family
On December 27 Husband Walter and his siblings gathered with spouses, grown children and their family or friends. Our first Christmas get-together since the death of our matriarch Grandma Sugar stayed true to her love of the Christmas season.
In 2013, well before her final hospitalization in August, she shopped. So Grandma Sugar had gifts under the tree for us all. I think some sisters-in-law served as Santa’s elves to sort and prepare gifts for the celebration.
And Grandma Sugar would have been proud of her grandchildren. They have stepped up to organize, host and contribute to keeping the family tradition. It was a poignant time, full of love.
