The two RV Gypsies proudly announced the birth of their great-granddaughter Gabriella. She joins her brother Anthony who is now 6 years old already. He is such a proud big brother.

Veteran's Day Celebration - November 10, 2016

The two RV Gypsies were invited to be on stage along with other local Veterans to be honored by school children who sang USA and military songs, plus cited the Pledge of Allegiance correctly. Children marched by the stage, each one carrying a large flag for each of the U.S. Military Branches. Each veteran received a certificate and were asked to say a few words about their service. What an honor.

Part of the family means someone is almost always home, and yet there is always room for more. So Karen Duquette's friend Monica who lives in Sweden always spends Christmas day with the family.

Every year Lee Duquette gets a T-shirt with his grandchildren's photo on it. First it was Kristen, then it was Kristen and Alex, then it was Anthony, now it is Anthony and Gabriella. Lee loves the shirts.

This was the 9th year that the two RV Gypsies had to celebrate Christmas without their son, Brian Duquette. Each year, on the second Sunday in December, The Compassion Friends sponsor a Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony and the two RV Gypsies go to church to honor and remember their son Brian Duquette and bring home their yearly angel. It does not ever get easier, the tears still flow, and the hole in their hearts will never heal.
