As we approach the close of 2022, our thoughts turn to our parents, our children, our families, and our friends. And especially, all the heartwarming and indelible memories of those who have passed away that are etched in our hearts and minds. We are stronger and better for having them in our lives. We cultivate our memories and relish with joy all the people we have known and the places we have been. They create the moments and stories that have made us who we are. In recalling and retelling these stories, we reach for and connect with each other.
