generations remembering generations

all of my sisters and their families gathered at the brigham city cemetery.

i like being a family.
i like overhearing the conversations of teenagers.
i like watching them roll their eyes at me.
i like watching these kids hear about a grandpa they don't remember.
i like watching them learn of great & great great (& so on) grandparents.
i like that we walk the length of this cemetery and try to remember all of them.
i like that the bottom of dad's marker holds to quote, "to love another person is to see the face of God."
