A Family is a deeply rooted tree with branches of different strengths all receiving nourishment from an infinite source.
A Family is where character is formed, values are learned, ethics are created, and society is preserved.
A Family is where all members contribute and share, cooperate and work, and accept their responsibilities toward the good of the group.
A Family is where holidays are celebrated with feasting, birthdays acknowledged with gifts, and thoughts of days gone by kept alive with fond remembrances.
A Family is where each can find solace and comfort in grief, pleasure and laughter in joy, and kindness and encouragement in daily living.
A Family is a haven of rest, a sanctuary of peace, and most of all a harbor of love.
I believe most, if not all, of these quotes were written by Manny Feldman.
