Last Friday my grandmother passed away. She was 94 years old. 

Grandma Kathryn was my mom's mother. She was the sweetest, kindest woman I've ever met. Even when she was in pain she was so wonderful and positive. We could all take a page from her book. 

I have so many great memories from my childhood with her. We lived close and saw her often. 

About 2 weeks ago we went and visited her in the hospital and I'm so glad we did. I'll never forget how she put her hand on my belly, smiled, and said how happy she was for us. Grandma had a really hard time getting pregnant too and I'm pretty sure my mom told her some about our struggles. She adopted her first 2 children (including my mom) and then went on to have 4 boys.  

Today was her funeral. It was so sad and I think everyone was crying by the end. 

She will be missed. Rest in peace Grandma. 


  1. Oh I am so sorry :( She sounds/looks like a really nice lady. Reminds me of my 91 year old Nana! I'm gonna be a mess when she goes.

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family ((HUGS))

  3. So sorry for your loss! I don't have any living grandparents anymore, but when I did lose them, I remember it was devastating.. Sending you big hugs from FL!!

  4. Ahh, I'm sorry for your loss but so glad you had such a special Grandma in your life. She sounds like a wonderful lady. Beautiful pictures of her.
