My Canadian cousin Richard, loving husband and father of three, and friend to countless more, had been studying to become a permanent Roman Catholic deacon. His ordination and 25th wedding anniversary fell on Saturday and Sunday respectively so that's where I was, along with my brother, mother, and just a few dozen aunts, uncles, and cousins. We are and always have been close enough to pick right back up. Due to limited seating, I have no pictures of the ceremony, but fine memories.
