FAMILY FOREVER

As I reflect on this most beautiful and intriguing weekend in Spokane, I cannot help but feel gratitude for reconnecting with the family.  I enjoyed almost every minute with the highs and the lows (except the Buffalo's loss of course haha).  I hope that my photos here document a few of those moments so that we can always remember the awesome Pete Fraser and stay closer as family.

Bag Piper 

Music has a wonderful way of transcending the moment.  I started crying uncontrollably when the pipes fired up.  It connected my love for my grand father with our heritage.  It was a beautiful way to celebrate a community hero like Pete.

A farewell

Waving good bye to the bag piper was a great way to send Pete off.  Celebrating with family and friends was cathartic.
