A Beginning for the Bennages

Today some of our very good friends moved from one corner of America to the other. The Bennages have relocated to Redmond, Washington. The J Train among others in Tallahassee have been sad to see them go, but are excited for this new venture for them.

We have known Christopher and Sandra for over 15 years and count them as family. Our kids love each other and even tend to argue like siblings at times. Christopher played bass in our college band, the flying j's. Sandra and I are most definitely kindred spirits. (And I am posting this partly because she is among the handful of people who read this blog!)

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks trying to party and hang out with them before they left. In junior high when someone would move away we'd all get in a big hug circle and cry to "Friends are Friends Forever." It wasn't quite like that, but it was the adult version. We love you and will miss you!

"Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again"
Ecclesiastes 11:1

Love you, Julie Alley!! :)

I really like the panoramic. I may have to steal it.

And I keep having your lyrics, "This is not the end, it's the beginning..." running in my head.
