A Sad Day

Ryan woke me up with bad news today. My dear, sweet Grandma Ann passed away Tuesday morning. She wasn't ill and it was pretty unexpected. Out of the grandparents I have left, she was the last we thought would go. But as sad and heartbroken as I am, I feel somewhat comforted. I know she was prepared and that she knew we loved her and her passing was quick and peaceful I'm sure. What a woman she is though and we will all miss her so terribly. I leave on Thursday to come home for the funeral. It's the first time I've had to do that but I knew that someday it would happen, I guess we're never quite ready though. Give your loved ones a little extra squeeze next time you see them. Love you Grandma!

Notice my Grandma isn't looking at the camera in most pictures. She hated us taking her picture and I can just see her now waving her finger at me for posting all of these :)

Steph.....I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to actually see it happen to your own family even when you deal with it on a regular basis with others. My prayers are with you and your family. Travel safe!
