My sister used the above quote after Grandma had passed. While Grandma held my hand shorter than I would have liked, she has proudly been there for
all of my bigger accomplishments (This is from college graduation.),
every year at Christmas,
and sending cards for every major (and non-major) holiday for all 29 years of my life.
I know she will always be one of my biggest fans.
Grandma knew the definition of unconditional love and she set the bar very high bar as an example for me to live up to.
I actually spoke at the funeral and while I had more to say, I said what I wrote up above. It was an honor to do so and to get to say such good things about someone who I love dearly and whole heartedly believe is one of the kindest, most loving, beautiful christians on earth. I wish I could have her back healthy but that's not possible.
Here is a picture of her and Grandpa.
And some pictures with my sister and with my cousin and aunt...
While this past weekend was difficult, it was also nice to see my family, whom I adore. Below are some pictures from this past weekend.
Grandpa put the flag half-staff. I thought that was so sweet.
My grandpa grows roses and has beautiful flower and a beautiful yard. He definitely takes pride in his yard and flowers. He brought my Grandma roses while she was in hospice and they used some of his roses for the flowers for the casket. They were so pretty. Here are some of his roses.
Here are some pictures of the family.
