Karen's Family Tree

This is my family tree... LaPier and Uphoff. If you have any questions or can add information, please contact me!

A Family is...
a deeply rooted tree with branches
of different strengths all receiving
nourishment from an infinite source.

A Family is...
where character is formed,
values are learned,ethics are created,
and society is preserved.

A Family is...
where all members contribute and share,
co-operate and work, and accept their
responsibilities toward the good of the group.

A Family is...
where holidays are celebrated with feasting,
birthdays acknowledged with gifts,
and thoughts of days gone by kept alive
with fond remembrances.

A Family is...
where each can find solace and comfort
in grief, pleasure and laughter in joy,
and kindness and encouragement
in daily living.

A Family is...
a haven of rest, a sanctuary of peace,
and most of all, a harbor of love.
