    Hey Hey, Hubbers!  I made it home safely from La Crescenta, California where I attended a funeral for a beloved uncle.  I vowed never to return to Southern California after the death of my mother back in 1988, but changed my mind when I heard this news.
    I am glad to say that I actually listened to the words of others online who advised me not to miss the opportunity at hand.  Even though it was a tragic affair, the service was replete with many family members I am proud to call my own!
    I am a very blessed and lucky woman.

    The good outweighed the bad, that's for sure.  I reconnected with family I thought had written me off long ago.  I went through many years of drug addiction and alcoholism, ignoring my heritage.  But they've welcomed me back with open arms.
    I love them all, and I love my HubPages family as well! smilesmile
