I was going over some of the Castro Family Newsletters that Lia published from her home computer several years ago. In February 2002 she published the first newsletter and did it for nearly three years. She titled it “Family Unity Through Communication.” She had decided that because the family was growing so fast, events were happening in the family that sometimes we were unaware of. She asked for news of happenings in each family that could be passed on to the rest of the family. She was the editor and publisher and did a terrific job. We all enjoyed the newsletter so much. Family members contributed sports news about their kids, others contributed recipes, and I had Mom’s Corner. That’s where I started writing some of my stories so the younger generations would know how we lived in the old days. Eventually it got to be too demanding on Lia because she had to be pushing the rest of us to meet the deadline. So she had to give it up. . . .

Here's to my dad who never took the time to attend any of my band performances. He also didn't attend my graduation ceremony. He never had time to just talk. He never took me fishing or hunting. Never heard an 'attaboy'. ... More ›
