Saying Goodbye for Now

On Saturday July 10th we had the privilege of watching an amazing icon in our life pass from this life and move onto a life with Jesus where all of her pain is now gone and where she has now been reunited with many loved ones that have gone before her especially her twin sister. Even though saying goodbye to her was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do, there was great comfort in knowing that she is in a much better place and that we too will see her again in that place...Heaven. John's grandmother was a person who touched every one's life that she came in contact with. We all understood how wonderful she was but it was even more evident just how great she was after watching and talking with so many of her friends & family during the visitation and after the funeral. There is no doubt that she is going to be missed more than ever but we know that missing her will only be for a short time and not forever.As a special request from Grandma before she passed away she asked that all of he Grandson & Great Grandson be her pallbearers. Which is exactly what happened as an added tribute to her her Great Granddaughter followed behind with boys and helped as well. This was such a moving sight and even if they all don't know what this meant someday they will understand just how much it meant to GG.Here service was wonderful just like her. So many stories and memories that we can't wait to continue to share with those still to come.
After her service we all went back to Grandma and Grandpa's house to swim as her pool full of grand kids was one of her favorite things. There were lots of memories that came with swimming in this pool and lots of kids that learned how to swim thanks to her in this very pool. Once we were done swimming we went back to the cemetery to plant flowers around her stone as she loved to garden and loved flowers. It looked so nice when they were all done and it as a great way to end the day.
