A sad day....


I'm writing today with a broken heart and I know that getting it out will finally make me cry. My great-grandma passed away early this morning. I think that I'm still in shock.....I don't want to believe that she's gone. I know though, that she's in a better place and that she gets to be with great-grandpa again. We went to visit Dan's grandmother today and I didn't want to spend the whole time crying like I know I need to do so I kind of tucked away my tears. I am so very very sad and I already miss her so very much. She lived a long 93 years and I will never forget her.

Oh Carrie, I am so very sorry to hear that you lost someone so dear to you! I know what a blessing it is to have had Grandparents and that unconditional love they give to us. I can only imagine it must be even more so with a Great Grandparents. She looked like a very smart, together and very pretty lady. I am sure she will be sorely missed. I hope you will be able to share your feelings and memories with your family during such a sad and difficult time.

{{{Hugs}}}

PS I was just going to tell you I popped in to see what you were up to... I'm going to run over to the store and pick up that cute beach doodle set! I know its not at the top of your concerns right now but I thought just a little happiness on a day like today is something. Take care

I am so sorry for your loss. I know I've seen that picture of you and your great grandmother before--did you post it on your blog at an earlier time? I remember it because I thought it was a very sweet picture. I'm glad you have a picture like that to remember her by. I will say a prayer for her.
