Our Summer Loss . . . A Happy Reunion on the Other Side

Half of our family in this picture went home this summer - Zach, Roger and Brad (the three on the right).

This picture was taken last summer when my dad, Eric and nephew, Chris,and deceased loved ones went to Africa with Choice Humanitarian building a foundation for a school.

Dad you were inspired to take the boys on this great trip. I am so glad you all had those three weeks to spend time together. What wonderful memories you and Eric have.

JUST ONE LIFETIME wouldn't be enough for us

Last month, on July 14, we buried my brother, Brad. Right before the funeral I insisted that the family that was at the house take some pictures in the backyard. I commented that "we just never know . . ."

Till We Meet Again

Roger, Karen's older brother (left picture) and his son Zach (right), were killed this past Sunday in a plane crash as they were heading to Guatemala on a Choice Humanitarian mission.

Please remember my dear wife and her family at this time in your thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace my brothers and until we meet again....

Much alofa's,

I need to update our blog desperately. I will eventually get up to date even with photos.

I need to save money on groceries and I am trying to get into coupon clipping and sale watching. If you all have any pointers I would greatly appreciate them.

Side note: Today we went to Sam's for milk and picked up some meat and dairy products. Alana was so surprised at the total - $88. She said, "For that?!" I tried to explain to her that it costs a lot of money to run a household.

Anyway, it would be great to be able to save money on perishables.
