Fell in love with these...

Last Thursday, I went with my family to my grammie's funeral. I had seen photographs of her throughout my childhood, but I had not seen that many and when the video memorial was played at the funeral, I just fell in love with some of the photos that were shown. My grammie was 82 when she died and I wish she could have been around longer, but I am so glad I got to see her before she passed away. She was such an awesome woman and I am glad she spoke so much about praying to Jesus before she passed away. I could even see more joy in her eyes the week before she died and that was something I will never forget. In the middle of her suffering, she was smiling and making jokes and I know I will be seeing her again.

She was definitely not afraid to get dirty and work with tools. I love that she was short like me, too. Hehe.

She was a tree-hugger! I never knew this...and that is rad.

I think this photo is just gorgeous and I love how she looks super tall. Definitely something for me to think about on my wedding day...whenever that may happen... :-D

I am going to miss her so very much, but she left behind some very good memories. There is so much work to be done over at her house, so I may be posting a few more photos as my family and I sort through her things. It's so strange being over there at her house too...because all of her things are everywhere, but she is no longer walking around so it was such an empty feeling being there after her funeral.
