What is their secret to keeping such a large family close?

  • “The way we feel about all of our in-laws…We've always felt for and treated our son-in-law and daughters-in-law the same as we have our own children.”
  • “We have always considered the families of our son and daughters-in-law to be extensions of our family. All extended family members know without having to ask that they are included and invited to all ‘family’ events.
