Family / by Dave Hileman

This is the centerpiece Cindy arranged this year. It has a large glass plate that belonged to her Aunt B. She took care of Cindy after her parents died when Cindy was but eight. The three jello molds were from Cindy's mom. She has a bag of them and we even use them on rare occasions. The candle is on a small plate we gave my mother on her 90th birthday. The cloth was given to Cindy by a close friend's mother that reflects her Swedish heritage. So, bits and pieces of others and far away places find their way to our table at Christmas. And we value the memories they hold.
