From near and far they gathered.
No place sweeter or finer.
Their memories fell into a beautiful collision of laughter and family and joy and delight.
This was it.
Babies growing to boys.
Sons growing to men.
Parents growing to grandparents.
Siblings growing to friends.
Spouses growing to beloved.
They witnessed it all.
A lineage of love and respect, of trust and treasure.
And that from near and far–no matter what or through whatever–they were together.
