Trying to find Joy in Life

Hello Everyone,
Hope everyone is doing well. I know I've been gone for a
while now. I will get to that in a moment. In my header picture
is another album that I had been working on. Below is a better
picture of the inside cover and the first page.

Well first off my camera is giving me fits some days it will
work and other days it will not. For now I'm trying to get
the hang of my sons' camera. The problem with my camera
is that it won't turn on sometimes unless I beat it on something.
I was finally was able to get it to turn on and got all the pictures
downloaded that were still in my camera.
It's been a very sad and hard emotional couple of weeks for
us. On June 5th my cousin who is pictured below passed away
at the age of 46. She is my cousin from my dads' side. Growing
up we were best of friends more like sisters. Her siblings were
a bit older than her and I had no sister. I was the oldest of my
family. All our cousins were either way older than us or way
younger so we had each other. We did a lot together growing
up. I had returned to my home town 4 years ago and we were
seeing each other more regularly we were making plans for this
summer. Things we won't get to do together now. I miss her
Enriqueta Katie Reyes

In the picture below is my cousin Felix Jr. Avila and his wife
Nina. My cousin Felix passed away yesterday. He was 63.
Felix is my cousin on my moms' side of the family.

He too was a big part of my life when I was a kid. We hadn't
seen much of each other lately but as spring and summer got
here I was expecting I would because we always caught up with
one another at the car shows that went on around this area. I
did know how the family was doing because I would visit with one 
of his daughters often.  He will be missed by his family he was
the rock that everyone could lean on. 

I have not really crafted much lately other than making Sympathy
cards and let me tell you those are not easy for me to make.
I appologize to my design team leaders and my design team
sisters for being absent. Services for my cousin Felix won't be
until the 22nd so it's going to be a long week for us. I ask you
to please find it in your hearts to pray for my family that they
find comfort in God and his teachings.
Thank you everyone for being so understanding. Until my
next post Have A Splendid Afternoon!!!!!!!!!
