Before We Met

Babies are born with the need to be loved and they never outgrow it

Children are the hands by which we take hold of Heaven

Every Child's eyes are, by nature......
open to the glories of the stars, the beauty of the flowers, and the mysteries of life

Childhood is the most beautiful of all life's seasons

Children hold our hands for awhile, and our hearts forever

What one loves in childhood stays in the heart forever

Like flower petals unfolding, the life of a child grows lovelier with time

While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about

Do what makes you happy and believe in the wisdom of the heart

We live in the present, we dream of the future
but we learn eternal truths from the past


You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray,
you'll never know, dear, how much I love you.....


Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.....


Families are forever

Little Brother

The greatest gift my parents ever gave me was my brother.....

A brother shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams

It was nice growing up with someone like my brother
someone to lean on, someone to count on... and someone to tell on

Because I have a brother, I will always have a friend

In Memory

Love is patient, Love is kind, Love never fails.
And now these three remain..... Faith, Hope, & Love
But the greatest of these is Love.

Lucas Christopher Ross
October 31, 1979 - April 3, 2001

We Met
March of 2001

Life's landscape is larger than you can see,
and tomorrow holds promise beyond your imaginings

Love is when you sit beside someone doing nothing
yet you feel perfectly happy

Lewisberry, Pennsylvania

Home is wherever I'm with you

Magaro & Ross

The two families met for the first time in Pennsylvania, October 2008

In memory of Altair
March 15, 2002 - March 31, 2011

If a star fell from the sky everytime I thought of you,
the evening sky woud be empty


Love does not consist of gazing at each other
but in looking together in the same direction.

December 15, 2011

Some things just fill your heart without even trying

November 21, 2014

I love you..... Those three words have our life in them

Family Pets

Until one has loved an animal, a port of one's soul remains unawakened.

Meant to Be

I don't regret the things I have done or the things I have chosen not to do,
because whatever I've done I must have done something right
because I ended up with you.
