Rest In Peace, Grandma

On June 6, my daughter turned 13. And my Grandma Shirley finally gave up her struggle against cancer. My Aunt Connie had a feeling Grandma was going to slip away on Alex's grandpa died on Aunt Connie's 13th birthday. My great grandpa died on my Aunt Angie's 13th birthday. Strange how things work out that way. But even though we are sad and it still seems she was too young at her 82 years of age to die, we were blessed to have been touched by her goodness and vast love.

I love this photo of Grandma. See the mix of sweetness and orneriness in her expression? Hopefully that spirit will be carried on - in all of her kids and grandkids.

We love you, Grandma.
