F is for Family Tree from Edenhouse

This week for F there were a number of F's I could have chosen Faith, future, food to name a few.
I have chosen Family tree .

My family is very special to me , not just my own children and parents and grandparents , but my Aunts , Jean is Shropshire and Trish or Aunty Pat as I have always called her who lives in Spokane Wa .there is another Aunt Irene but she has chosen to have no contact with me thats fine.

As I write this I am sadly waiting for a phone call to tell me that Trish has died. Trish has been fighting Ovarian cancer for 13 years .

Her family are so important to me as Trish has been a second mum to me since my own mother died when I was 16.
Trish is married to Chuck and they have 4 children Kathe, Jerry, Lori and Jack who between them have 8 children and have given their mother 3 great grandchildren .

Then there is AJ who I have posted about on here before , she now lives in shropshire and its great to have her nearby .

.I have one brother who has two daughtera and  two grandaughters.

Then there is my own Family :

Rebecca who is 26 and Married to Carl , Elizabeth 24 and engaged to James , Christopher 22 married to Gemma and last but not least Hannah who has a fab boyfriend called Tom.
And one day I hope to be a grandmother who knows what God has planned .

All I know is that right now this family is about to lose the most amazing member of it .




And without her I would not be the person I am .

I am taking part in Alphabet Thursday over with Jenny please pop by to see what else is on offer
