RE: To Hubert, his family was everything...

Family is the most important thing to me. As one gets older, the family size diminishes, the children grow, marry or not, go on their way, the grandchildren grow up and become more involved and less reachable. You watch them with pride and joy, and see in them the traits, talents and some characteristics of other family members who may or may not still be here. Family is your past, current, and future.

Family is the heartbeat of my existence. Their love and support help me endure the most difficult of times and they are there to celebrate my joy. I gratefully reciprocate, enjoying the sheer privilege of loving others. Family describes the people that remain when everyone else fades away for any reason or season. Family ties us to our history and will link us to our future.

Family is the storehouse of shared memories and love. Family provides support, usually without criticism, and a listening ear and/or a caring embrace.

I'm not close to my birth family, so there's no support there (in either direction), but certainly my chosen family - two close friends and my husband - mean the world to me.

Family is very important to me. But as the wife of a Marine, I’ve lived my entire adult life away from my parents and siblings. Friends became our family, especially when we lived overseas. I need to feel connected to others.

My family is extremely important to me. I look to family members for support in all of my efforts. I also realize that "family" means more than my family of origin. It includes friends who choose to support me.

I believe the love of family and friends is what put the heart in this novel. I would do anything for my family, those connections are what make life amazing.
