The only true foundation there can be for anything in this world is solid faith.

There isn't much time today for blogging as I am traveling out to Indiana for a memorial service for my uncle Eddie. It will be an occasion of both joy and sadness, as Eddie (my favorite uncle) lived a long and amazing life. We are grateful to have had him so long but sad to see him go.
Of course, funerals and weddings are times for families to come together. It's been too long since I have seen mine, especially my brother Joe, another reason for joy. Speaking of which, check out this unbelievably inspiring slide show from The Huffington Post today about two gorilla brothers reuniting. If you think animals don't have complex feelings and relationships, I hope your mind will be changed... or else I give up!
