Some Sad News

I never guessed I would start this week off on a somber note, but such is life. This morning, we attended my grandmother's funeral. She passed away last week after her health started declining rapidly after Christmas. Of course, I had wished she would have made it to the wedding, but I'm happy that she made it to my first bridal shower. Since family members who lived far away were already coming in for the wedding this weekend, we waited until this week to hold the funeral.

It was a lovely service - sad, of course, but also joyous in remembering her adventurous life. It was nice to get some closure and lay her to rest. She was the matriarch of our family, she held us together (I truly believe I am only as close to my cousins as I am because it was my grandmother who provided so many opportunities to be together), was always kind and fair, and we all loved her dearly. When I think of a proper lady, I will always think of Grandmother.

Rest in peace Grandmother! You'll have the best seat in the house at the wedding. See you there. <3
