When Dorothy’s cancer diagnosis changed to “terminal,” all her kids and their families started to trickle into the area to spend time with her. Becky and I had planned a working trip to our Neskowin house to get it ready to sell, but we saw the opportunity to do more, so we converted our getaway into an impromptu family beach trip.
A large percentage of the 25 people in this extended family ended up in Neskowin that weekend. We even had a surprise arrival from the branch that was living in Germany!
We all had a great time. The beach has always been an important part of Ken and Dorothy’s family, so it seemed fitting that we spend some truly quality time out there.
