A year ago today I was in Bellingham, taking care of my beloved Grandma. Grandma Jo and I were very close and I remember spending a LOT of time over at my grandparent’s house during my childhood. We lived with them for a while when I was 2 and my Dad was building our house (that was 28 years ago!) I remember each Saturday going over to Grandma (and Grandpa)’s house to help with chores and then my Mom, Sister, Grandma and I packing in the car to go grocery shopping. I remember doing my Grandma’s hair for her in my youth. I remember going to Church with them EVERY Sunday and then having lunch every other Sunday with them. And even as I grew up, got married, had babies and lived my life, I held my Grandma very close to my heart! I remember brushing her hair in those final days of her life…
And although I am sad and tomorrow (April 15th) will be emotional and heartbreaking, I am also grateful that she is in a much better place and has no pain! I’ve posted a few pages of the in the past, I’ll post some more today and the rest of this week!
The pictures here were taken when my Grandparents were married and my Mother was born!
Thank you for letting me share these with you!
