As we approach the upcoming services I have been praying for strength and courage. Our family is going through a very sad time but we know Grandma is in heaven with Jesus and that is reason to celebrate. Grandma lived a full and beautiful life! I have been searching for the right words to express how much Grandma Carol means to me but I am not sure my worldly phrases will do justice. I have been in aw with the outpour of thoughts, prayers and memories being shared. That in itself is a true testimony to how amazing of a women she is.
Grandma taught me so many things but most of all she taught me to have fun and enjoy each day. I feel so blessed to have had 24 wonderful years with her. Grandma Carol was so full of life and was always young at heart. Grandma knew how to put a smile on my face from the time we went swimming at 5:00 am to the time she celebrated with me at my bachelorette party!
Grandma’s contagious smile is gone to soon but we know this life here on earth is our temporary home and we will be together again one day. I know Grandma is sipping on a Kalua as she watches over her family and friends.
Grandma Carol and I have shared a love for flowers. We have made quite a few different arrangements over the years and I wanted to make one in celebration of her life. I made one recently for her when she came home from the hospital and it was full of spring colors so the arrangement I made tonight is also made with spring flowers. I decided to use flowers that resemble Grandma’s personality- fun, loving and beautiful!
I love you Grandma and I miss you so much already.
