Yes we are pressed by the need to get everything packed up and ready for our return to Haiti but this weekend has been filled with that which is more important that our simple return. It was the 75th birthday of Jacquie Gross, Jodie's mother and Jessica and Jacquie's grandmother. And did we party! It lasted two nights and was attended by all the family except for Chip who had some pressing work to do in Afghanistan and David, one of the grandsons who had other pressing needs.
There are not a lot of people who age well but Jacquie is one of those few who does it with gusto. I'm happy we stayed around long enough to be part of this party.
