Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of celebrating with my Uncle Roger for his 70th birthday. Uncle Roger is my late fathers brother and he was visiting from Florida (and most recently, Homer). In the Herrnsteen family tradition, we enjoyed mint chocolate chip ice cream with the cake! Together we cooked a meal of lentil soup, pan fried cod, a big salad and chocolate cake.
The only person missing was my dad-but I truly believe he was there in spirit with us, smiling at us from above.
