my mom & her two sisters

a couple of days after christmas we flew up to utah to attend my uncles funeral. my mom, siblings & i had gone up a week before christmas to see him & say goodbye, but it was very surreal when we heard that he has finally passed. he had battled with melanoma for the last year & a half which struck especially close to home because that is what my dad died from almost 19 years ago. it was a very bittersweet experience attending the funeral, it brought up a lot of emotions but, it was also comforting being surrounded by our family. all of my 28 cousins were able to make it to utah for the funeral, some of which i haven't seen since i was a kid, so it brought some happiness to the occasion. plus, my entire family was also together which is always fun.
