We have been very lucky in my big, fat, Cuban family. We always seem to equalize when we lose someone. What I mean by that is that when there has been divorce or death, it is inevitably followed by a wedding or a birth.
"God gives. God takes. God's name be ever blessed."

I was contemplating this while in the midst of the preparations for my brother-in-law's memorial.
It was then that I receive a text from my nephew, Michael, who lives in South Miami Beach.
Her name is Kimberly.
She fits right in. You'll love her.
He sent the following picture:
Michael's in love.
With a Cuban girl.
And is getting married. (which means we get to go to a wedding in Miami sometime soon, but that's not important right now.)
How adorable is this??
Congratulations, Michael and Kimberly!
Kimberly Verdés. It has a nice ring to it, I think.
(Speaking of rings. . . pictures, please!! =D)
Welcome, Kimberly to our big, fat, Cuban family.
I'm sure you'll fit right in. If Michael loves you, I'm sure we will too. ;-)
