Very early Monday morning, a few hours after Fathers Day, my uncle (my favorite aunt’s husband) passed away at the age of 85. It was unexpected and shocking because I thought he looked fine when I saw him a couple days earlier. What’s sad is that someone who has been a fixed presence my entire life is now gone. And while I grieve that he’s no longer around, I am greatly comforted knowing that my little miracle baby now has a companion who I was very close to in this earthly world. His funeral was on Friday at All Saints Church in Hayward. Here is a snapshot of a whole bunch of Gacad cousins. I am front and center in the long black maxi dress.
The following day I got to go to my first Indian wedding at the San Francisco Design Center! Holla! I have a lot of Indian friends so it is strange that this is my first, but we did our best to fit right in. My friend, the bride, was absolutely stunning!!! It was so much fun. We danced all night long.
I celebrated my June 18th birthday on Sunday June 23rd at Dogpatch Wineworks with friends from all walks of life, including my dear friend Marty who is 81 years old. Try to pick him out below; he is truly young at heart. I hired a photographer Chi Fang who I thought did an amazing job: high quality, creative photos and great value in a short amount of time.
