Someone suggested the relatives take some flowers before we left the cemetery

It was a very sweet way of making a sad time a little happier

We miss you Grandma, but we will "meet again soon", I know and that makes me so happy!

Last night, Andrew and I took Bethany out for her first Tim Horton's experience... =)

Tomorrow we head up north to a cottage with our whole family for a week... no idea about the internet situation there, so who knows when I'll post next. =)

we had a relative who dried the flowers we took from the casket then put them into fimo (sp?) clay and make beads for us. It was so special!

Thanks.

Those are great photos. I really wish I could've made it to Grandma's funeral. C'est la vie. Love the family photo. Maybe next year, we'll have including my family!
Love to all.

I feel the same way about grass!!!! Every time we go anywhere that has nice lush grass I want to roll around in it. I'm glad you were able to all be together for your grandma's funeral too. There is something bittersweet about it, isn't it? You know they lived a great life and you'll see them again and so it feel a little more like a celebration doesn't it? That's how it was when my mom's mom past away. Hope you keep having a great trip and look forward to seeing more photos!

I love the grass in MI too! ;-) I felt so sad for your Gr'pa losing his soul mate. I can't imagine how he must feel right now! The photo of Philip holding Moriah was precious, as was all the other family photos.
