Events in My Family Tree: January 9

Last week my mother's death appeared in the list, and this week my uncle's does, which brings back memories of what a bad month January 1995 was.  When I started this exercise I hadn't thought about the fact that those dates were in January and would show up so soon.  But happy memories come back also, and it's good to commemorate their lives.
