Yesterday, I talked to Deborah. She said that when they got to the airport, Lupé’s father-in-law was there to meet them with some brothers in law and some nephews. (Her mother-in-law was sick, so she couldn’t come to the airport. )
Deborah said, “Mom, you would love Ervin’s family. They are really special people. And when I saw Ervin’s father, I had such a sense of relief. He looks like Grandpa Yoder. He is built almost exactly like him, and he has the smiley wrinkles around his eyes. And he smiles alot. I just felt so comfortable with him.”
That, along with other things she told me, comforts me. It also makes me cry.
Even seeing him in someone else’s face would be pretty special.
