In Memory


One year ago today, I lost one of the most important people in my life ~ my dear Gram.

But one loss, is another gain ~ and I know there are many people, both living and deceased whose lives are much better today as a result of my Gram and her amazing life.

You won’t ever hear me say the words “rest in peace” ~ on the contrary, I hope that my Gram is having the best time of her life.

I love you Gram.

Nice, positive post about something that is really hard to deal with. I know everybody says it, but I do believe your Gram is in a better place.. doesn't mean we don't miss 'em.

I wonder if our grams watched us run together on Sunday? Maybe they were playing bunko on gold paved streets?

Thanks for sharing!
