Hilligoss Extended Family Christmas 2008

Grandma and Grandpa Hilligoss
Grandpa singing "Little Boy in the Carpenter Shop"
This song has been a tradition for the Hilligoss family for years. I think they used to sing it as a family back in the day. It was a bit hard this year because....with the news of grandpa's cancer and the future of Grandpa being with us next year is unclear and some what shaky. Grandma started weeping as Grandpa sat there with his eyes closed singing away about the little boy who started in a carpenter shop only to be nailed to a cross....then descend into hell and take the keys of death...then go on to on to the Gates and splendor of Heaven. I think all of us were enjoying and savoring the moment of that song, some with tears and others just breathing in each moment knowing that it may never be the same.
