Life is full of ironies and every once in a while we actually notice them.
Facebook displays photos on our “walls” that we’ve shared in previous years on that date. I was reminded that Mauri was visiting John and Rachel in Philly on this day exactly two years ago. (I was there too and took the picture.)
Who knew that he was also visiting John and Rachel in Philly exactly one year later and took this picture very close to the exact location? The poignancy isn’t lost on me either, since this visit was more than a visit; it was to accompany them on their return to Oregon. We are in the midst of one-year anniversaries of those last weeks together as a family and are feeling it acutely.
