    Memory to last a lifetime

    I just returned from my cousin's funeral and while it was a sad occasion, his wife and I shared a special memory. My cousin had been battling cancer but was doing well. Last week he suffered a fatal stroke. I didn't know this before because they live a few states away and aren't in touch on a regular basis, but it turns out the first week of June, him and his wife took their last vacation together to Aruba. His wife and I sat and talked for a while after the memorial service about how amazing their vacation was and all the places they saw and things they enjoyed together. I was happy to share that memory with her. It just reminds me how fragile life can be and how precious memories can be. I am so happy that they got to spend their last vacation together in such an amazing place as Aruba.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Nice post.....Traceyd14, it reinforces why we go every year, regardless of our finances, with our daughters. Can't take it with us, enjoying our daughters' inheritances (with them) in advance!

    Last year while we were at the AM a family was there with the ashes of a husband, father, and friend. Every day on the beach they would have a toast to him. Near the end of their stay they all waded out into the water and spread his ashes on the water.

    We had met the couple in years past and the both enjoyed Aruba very much.
