The Loss of a Family Member
Ian and Whitney at High School graduation
Today we are driving Ian three hours away to leave him at his place of residency for, likely, four more years. He begins his university-adventure. He has yet to declare a major but is fiddling between engineering and political science. Oh, the school -- Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. We have already (actually made these plans in April!) made plans for his room. The dinner table will not be the same. We are all a bit sad and grieving. Cards and gifts are appreciated.
