Celebrating a Home-Going...












That's right, yesterday we celebrated the truth that my Grandfather has gone on to his Heavenly Home. Yesterday was his funeral and memorial service. Most of my family is out of town so it was great to see everyone even if it was for a somber occasion. Many of my cousins were not able to make it but I did get to see a few who I haven't seen in many, many years. Everyone came to our home between the burial and the memorial services so that we could spend time together remembering Grandpa. My Grandma looked lovely and was so brave. Many lovely tributes were given at the memorial and my mom and uncle teamed up and sang a beautiful duet. I will always remember my Grandpa fondly and am happy he lived such a full and happy life. Thank you to all our friends and family for words of encouragement, prayers and practical help...blessings to you all.

  1. I am so sorry to read of your grandpa's passing. The tribute your family had for him looked wonderful, though. I hope you are able to find comfort during this difficult time.
