A Celebration of Life

We flew out to Chatsworth, CA to attend a celebration honoring my sister's life.   It was a wonderful and well attended affair, with family and friends coming in from all over the country.  Aside from being reunited with family members, meeting old friends and making new friends, the gathering was a tremendous testimony to my sister.  She was loved by all and will not be easily forgotten.   We would like to share some of the photos from the event with you.

The infamous Pfaff Brothers: Joe, Mike and George! Joe came in from Atlanta and George from Hammond, Louisina. Mike hosted quite a few of the family members at his home, while others stayed at a nearby hotel. It was great seeing everybody together. Christine would have been thrilled!.
