Hello to all of my readers! The wedding was beautiful, and I left single and came back with a boyfriend in my life. How wonderful is that?!?
I wish that the wedding would have been closer to my home because of the drive time, but then again, I would not have met the gentleman that has me swooning.
While I was getting back here, there was a death in my extended family of a baby who was just shy of three months of age. Of course, that is tragic, I won't downplay that. It is presumed that the baby passed of SIDS. As soon as I know, I will share here.
The passing of this infant got me to thinking about the importance of DNA testing. You never know when life will end. You never know when the person you were just speaking to yesterday will not be here. My grandmother passed away last year in December. The one thing that everyone in the family has lamented has been the fact that we did not get a DNA test done on her. That chance is gone forever to us.
If you are considering getting DNA done in your family, please start with the oldest or the weakest members of your family first. My grandfather was gone long before DNA testing was available to the public. The thought of getting him tested is just a tragedy as it wasn't there at the time. With my grandmother it was, and I don't want my family's regret to be your family's regret. Please, get DNA testing done on your older relatives now.
I write a lot about genetic genealogy, family trees, DNA, and home life as well as the occasional product review. Comments? Email me at CocktailsAndSwagger@Hotmail.com
