This crèche was a wedding present
from my uncle Bert and aunt Ruth, and the cross was a Christmas
present from our daughter Kathi. Both came from Mexico.
Each year, when we get out our
Christmas decorations, I always remember Uncle Bert. And I always
remember thinking when he gave this crèche to us that it was an
odd present, and particularly for a July wedding.
And I always think of how much more
he knew than I. It was one of the most memorable presents I've
ever received because every year I think of him and Aunt Ruth.
