The blessings of family ... As with most of you, on Easter we gathered with our families. For most it was a day of bright colorful egg hunts and visits with those we hold dear. For my family the holiday held many blessings. Strong family ties, including friends that care and share those family ties. Although this Easter had some bittersweet moments throughout the day, those family ties were strong and together we enjoyed a truly blessed Easter Day.

This week our family has once again been surrounded by the most loving, kindest and caring extended family we could ask for, as we suffered the loss of my younger brother, Ed Keaster this week. It all happened so quickly that before we knew it, we were at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto praying for a miracle.
