Earlier this evening, I attended a celebration of life party for a close family member taken too soon by cancer. The guest list was a hodge podge of folks from different walks of life. We spent most the evening talking, laughing, eating, and drinking good wine.
I have no doubt that my aunt would have enjoyed tonight's festivities. Afterwards, she would have headed out to listen to a blues band and play the slots.
The party only lasted for a few a hours but, it will stay in my heart for months to come.
