In Retrospect: Christmas in NYC


Background: We left Cambridge visited aunt Gwyneth at the the convent in CT then drove to NYC to spend Christmas with family. 

Memories: Just looking at these pictures brings back some many feelings from that visit, feelings of gratitude and heartache.  Some months before we had planned this visit as part of our road trip to Baja. The plan was to spend Christmas with Grandma in New York. Unfortunately Grandma passed away a few days before Christmas. None the less we held a family gathering in her apartment, there was a Christmas tree, family cooking, amazing food, thoughtful gifts, memories, and conversation... all things grandma-like. We all thought about her, her legacy, how much we will miss her and how much she will be with us always.
