New Hampshire

This past weekend was the memorial "party" for Drew's mother, Lee Robertson.  Though I only met Lee a handful of times, I felt like I knew her well after hearing Mel's stories of her on a regular basis over the past 5 years.  All of the stories were very fun & spirited; full of life.  One of my favorite memories was a winter day in our Andean Treks office, Mel, Peter & I were working away as any other day.  Lee sent Melissa an email that said "What retirees do in New Hampshire on a snow day."  Attached to the email was a photo of the Lee & Struan barreling down the snowy hills on inner-tubes, laughing themselves silly.  

She will be missed, but her zest for life is something that will linger for those that knew her well & those of us who knew her less.  
I think this photo of her is just amazing!

I love that Picure on the car. I assume it was a good weekend. Tears, joy, smiles, friends and memories. Nice. Miss you, girl.
