sparked interest: enjoy… family memories

Hello friends, thank you so much for the sweet words about our grandmother, June.  She passed away last night.  Losing a loved one is never easy.  Even though we knew this day was coming it is still difficult to experience (not a day goes by where we don’t think about our grandpa’s death )

This morning we pulled out family photo albums to browse through to reflect on memories. Family is so important. We feel so blessed to have such an amazing family and especially wonderful grandparents.

Our grandmother was a wonderful lady.
Smart. Beautiful. Always telling stories. Smiling. Laughing.

She remembered everything, oh the stories she would tell.

Love being able to look back at old photos and remember all the memories.

Grandparents are so special, aren’t they? We have learned so much from all our grandparents.

Thank goodness for memories as somehow we have to continue on with life.

    What a beautiful tribute to your grandmother. Really makes you appreciate the little things in life (cliches are allowed in condolences). I lost my aunt a few days ago, and you never really get over losing close members of the family.. Hugs

    Oh btw I love breath of fire! Kundalini yoga is so amazing, in a class they’ll do breath of fire for 5 mins straight and the amount of oxygen it brings in your body is crazy!

    I’m so so sorry to hear about your grandmother. She sounds like she was a beautiful woman, and that she played a nurturing and inspirational role in both of your lives. <3 You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers! I can only imagine the grief you're feeling right now. Hugs. <3 xoxoxo

    Both of you and your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers. I’ve lost my grandparents as well and I know how tough it can be, but I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with them and the lessons they taught me and the memories we made!

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss, L&M! Grandparents are so very precious – they leave us with magical memories :) I hope your grandmother is in peace. You twins were so cute as little girls — I guess some things never change ;) Sending positive thoughts for your family to heal. xo
