Sorry it has been quiet on the blog this past week. I normally try to steer away from really personal stuff especially if it's sad, but my family lost a very, very special man last week; he played a different role in each of our lives but to me he was my sweet Granddaddy.

We spent the weekend celebrating his life; surrounded by all the people he loved the most, sharing stories, tears & hugs & remembering all the wonderful, funny things about this sweet little man. He was such an amazing person, he loved his family & had the ability to make anyone laugh regardless of their age. He lived a long, full, happy life & left the amazing legacy of three beautiful daughters, 6 grandchildren & 11 great-grandchildren. I feel so lucky to have been able to call him my Granddaddy.

His smile & laughter will live on in my heart forever.

rest in the sweetest peace

Someday I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far Behind me. Where troubles melt like lemon drops Away above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me...
