I have quite the extended family. Both of my parents were farm kids, with several siblings, so my list of cousins goes on and on. And I’m more than delighted to know and love tenderly my cousins’ kids….my third cousins? That’s Gabe. Strong in spirit, steadfast Jesus-lover, well-balanced compassionate with kids-player. I loved his surprise visit during college basketball tour/try out time. Couldn’t resist a chance to grab some senior portraits as he passed through. Loved even more the phone pics of him hanging on the playset with his two siblings and my kids. I loved that my kids got to be with him, know him, and have him a part of their world.
