One of our favorite teams from The Longest Day last year – great idea!

A FAMILY AFFAIR

Josephine’s Team – Team Ceja

They decided on a motorcycle poker run that would end at the assisted living facility where her mother resides. They shared a Mexican feast complete with Mariachi music, a favorite of Josephine’s. “Music always brings out something special she still has inside her,” said Rose.

“Our parents have always taught us to be together and to be close to each other. We never thought we’d be in a predicament where we are trying so hard to give back to mom for all she has done for us.”
