sparked interest: enjoy… family memories

by purelytwins

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.

Grandma we love you and you will be missed!


We were so blessed to have you as our grandmother. We will miss you so much! Thank you for making our life so wonderful. Love you always — the twins

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



From us:

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, girls. It looks like you had a beautiful relationship with your grandmother. Stay strong! She is probably smiling down on you ladies right now.

Praying for you and her <3

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!
