October Highlights:

Life Can Throw a Lot of Things Your Way in One Month

This month had a little bit of everything — happiness, sadness, silliness, surprises, achievement — making it a little hard to focus this post on any one theme. My dad’s Tia Chela passed away at the official age of 102 — we believe her unofficial age may be several years older than that as records were not really that well kept in the countryside towns of Chile when she was born. In the weeks leading up to her death, her son would send a picture to my dad every day so that he could see she was still alive. My dad showed me a few of the pictures of a very skinny Tia Chela just hanging on to life until she eventually let go on October 21. The good news for my dad is that he had a chance to see her one last time during his visit to Chile last month.
