In Loving Memory

April 17th, 2009

My dear Grandmother joined her eternal companion this last Easter Sunday.

She has been missing my Grandfather for almost five years now, so I can imagine the joy she felt to be reunited with him.

This picture is from their 50th Wedding Anniversary 17 years ago and I love it.

It captures their sparkle perfectly.

And it’s how I will always remember them.

I love you, Grandma and Grandpa.

Thank you for being such loving, wonderful grandparents.

I look forward to seeing you again someday.

And I only wish my children could have known you here on earth.

Love Your Granddaughter and Namesake,


p.s.  I’m sorry it’s been so quiet on here this week.  It’s been a little crazy as I’ve prepared for an unexpected flight to go and honor my Grandma.  I hope you are all well and I will be back blogging soon.

Heidi I am sorry you lost your Grandmother. I love that picture of your Grandparents. They look like they were awesome people.

What a wonderful picture. They look so happy together – and even though I didn’t know them, they just look like they belong together. :)

I hope your trip was a good one, and that you are comforted as you miss your dear grandma.
