Family & Friends

All things must come to an end and so did our time with family and friends in South Africa. We returned to Central America at the start of June and it was a tough goodbye to say after everything that happened in the 3 months while we were home.

Most of our time was spent with family, understandably so, and Rufus put everything of himself into building his mom and dad’s dream home. Thank you to every member of our family, close and extended, for everything while we were there – the chats, the meals, the help with building the house, the support after Ma passed and the laughs. You are all so special to us.

And then we have our amazing group of friends that understood if we couldn’t see them, to be with family. Those we did manage connect with did a wonderful job of taking our minds off the loss and pain while managing to inspire us with new dreams and joy when we did see them.

Thank you!!!!
