8 years without Maria, my beautiful grandmother. Today I think of the things that I loved most about her. Her homemade bread and sauce, her sweet laugh and accent, her unconditional love for Papa. This will always be my favorite photo of them on their "first date" surrounded by their family. And this is true joy - food, fellowship, hope in the face of war, unwavering faith in a gracious God. I am honored to belong to such a family. Miss you more each year, Nana.
