"Life will knock you down. You can choose to stand up again."

This is my Aunt Marlene. She lives in Texas. She is my dad's oldest sister. She came to watch one of Jackson's football games. Pretty stinking cool. I am grateful for my extended family. I am thankful for my four grandparents, two who are living and two who have passed. My miss my Grandma and Grandpa Robb every day. I literally think about them everyday and miss them so much. My Grandma Robb was the ultimate example to me. Oh, I loved her. I loved her soft skin and sweet smile, her faith and her love of her family. My Grandpa Robb was one of my best friends. He was such a grumpy pants. That might be where I get it from! He loved his diet pepsi... had one in each pant pocket, one in his shirt pocket, one on his tv tray and one in his hand. He loved his family so much. My Grandma and Grandpa Nef live in California. My Grandma Nef is the socialite, the entertainer, the budget queen, the food making specialist. My Grandpa Nef is tender-hearted, hard-working, kind and affectionate. I love that every time I see him, he hold my face in both hands and kisses me, like he is trying to get my attention for that one moment to tell me he loves me, still. He calls all of the boys, "dude." I love that. I have several aunts and uncles and cousins who I love. I am very blessed and very thankful.
