About the Author:
Marjorie White Pellegrino really did know the boy who played ball with his uncle one last time. A writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, she finds much of her inspiration in children, and repays their gift in writing workshops where she offers them a chance to discover their voice and wisdom. Marge grew up in Tuckahoe, New York, and has made her home in Tucson, Arizona, for the last 20 years with her husband, son, cat, and the desert creatures who visit their yard on a daily basis.

About the Illustrator:
Christine Kempf was born in Buffalo, New York. An impassioned student of human face and form, she grew up surrounded by a large family who became the subjects of her earliest drawings. Christine now lives in sunny Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband.

Following the unexpected death of his uncle, a boy travels to the funeral with his extended family and begins to think about what the event will mean for all of them.
