Funerals are such an interesting contrast.  A combination of what is sometimes the very saddest event (the loss of a loved one), and what is often the very happiest event.  (Seeing so many people that you love.)  Fortunately Grandma’s funeral wasn’t terribly sad because she has been so unhealthy for so many years and we were grateful that she didn’t suffer.  So we were able to really enjoy getting having everyone together for the first time in a long time.

It was the first time in forever that we had all of our kids together in the van.  I was surprised at how joyful it felt to be together like that.



I’ve always felt so lucky that I married into such a wonderful family.  Here are all of the grandchildren, spouses, and great grandchildren.


The whole group—everyone was there except for a granddaughter and a granddaughter in law who were both pregnant and on bedrest.
