"Coquades galore" is the way my Papa signs every letter, card, or email to his four daughters.  It's the way his Papa signed his letters to his four sons.  It's a something, a nothing, a phrase that means "I love you" in the language of our family.  It means "big hugs" and "lots of forehead kisses" and "you belong".  It's home.

Welcome to the family, Dear Reader!  Coquades galore to you and yours!
