Memories Timeline


  1. When we were kids, I remember Darwin being very quite, most of the time. So one day, during a family reunion, I looked over at him and he was smiling at me. I asked him, “What are you smiling about?” He said, “You’re funny.” I said, “Thanks… I think.” He said, “You make me laugh.” I said, “I’m glad I’m entertaining you.” I knew he didn’t mean anything bad by that remark, but it made me wonder why I was so funny. I decided not to ask. At least, I made him smile. Lol
    I remember visiting with him and Angelina after Rosetta was born. He was so proud of his new baby. he was beaming.
