A time to mourn
This will be a new experience for us as parents, as no one the boys know has passed away in their lifetimes. They are already in bed tonight, so we'll be waiting until tomorrow to tell them the news.
Here is the entire Rayner side of the family, including all three of my cousins, their parents and my parents. Nathan's first birthday coincided with our return from living in Japan, so we threw an enormous party and everyone we hadn't seen in a year came. Of course they were really coming to see Nathan, but we were happy anyway.
