family traits

This is my father as a little boy. What is striking about this photograph is how much Seth looks like my father in this picture. And to further amaze, my brother looks exactly like my father, as a boy and as a man. My cousin Kenny, who was just buried this weekend, complete with military honors, couldn't get over the similarities in our family. He would always shake his head in disbelief and would say it many times.

It's like rewinding time, seeing my father now looking just like my grandfather, my brother looking just like my father, and my sweet little nephew Seth looking like them both. And the magic for me is that I see myself in all of them too.
