So many wonderful memories...

Today was one of those harder days in life. My Grandma C. was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer less than three weeks ago, and today she went home. She was an amazing 89 years YOUNG and acted that way up until just recently. I can't even tell you what an inspiration she was and still is to me.

She and my Grandpa (who passed when I was only 8 years old) were absolutely head over heals in love with each other. She talked of him even last week, in a manor that two teenage love birds would. :) I am finding comfort that she is dancing with him now, after 20 years of being apart. She told me more than once, that she saw great deal of my Grandfather in Tom. What an amazing thing to say, knowing how much she loved and respected him.

She found so much joy in her grand children and of course great-grand children. Maddie was her "little joy" and she couldn't get enough of her. I am posting a picture of Madilyn and her G.G. that was taken at the end of August, where they are dancing to swing music. :D The other images are from our family reunion in July. Those are the times we will not let Maddie forget.

We will miss you Grandma, but know that you are with out pain, and in the arms of your soul mate. Peace be with my Mom, Dad and the rest of my family in this time.
