Today we are attending the Memorial Service for a very long time friend.
Xavier was in our lives for over 40 years.
He fought the good fight and is now free from pain and daily difficulties.
He was our choir director , long ago, and just loved people. He always called me Susanna. I loved that, it was his tender intimate name for me.
Xavier had 8 brothers and sisters and was the father to 6 of his own.
My boys were fortunate enough to always be a part of their family too.
Bittersweet day today.
I am looking forward to visiting with many friends from long ago.
