Those who say it can't be done...

So if this is posted it is because I am mia because my grandmother has passed away.

No, debbie downer here...just me & you....CeLebRaTing some life. I had an amazing relationship with my grandmother and I know my sister, Amber, did too and that is what matters. She has been battling dementia for two years now and after some long prayers and wondering why life takes it's certain twists and turns, she has closed her eyes.

I know she would agree with me on this one. And Henry, named after my grandpa...well...this just seems fitting.

Again, my friend... so very sorry!
I know how hard it is to say good-bye but I also know she has gone to live in a far better place than where we all are! And the best part, she'll be there to welcome you home one day! That's how I always look at it when I am missing my dad and my babies :)
Many thoughts and prayers for you and your family ;)
