Goodbye. I'll miss you...

On Friday morning, May 20th, I got the phone call I'd been dreading. My grandfather died around 10:30 am.

I handled calling some cousins to pass along the news and called my boss to let her know. I was already planning on going to visit Saturday through Monday as I was trying to get down there every couple of weeks. I checked with my Grammy and she still wanted Megan and I to come. She asked about the pictures I had just scanned and did I have any good ones for the memorial service. Of course I said, and I'll take care of that project. I started pulling anything I thought I might want and printed the pictures I had in several different sizes. I still ended up running to Michael's for more cardstock and Walmart for photo printing while I was there.

Here is the finished piece:

I had also taken some of my recent layouts along to show my Grammy and she started tearing up when she saw this one so I also picked up a frame while I was at Michael's and gave it to her.

Overall, we had a good visit. Grammy seems to be handling things well and was expecting another one of her granddaughters to spend the day with her Tuesday and her son to arrive from Florida on Wednesday. My family won't be attending the memorial service this Saturday because we have scout camping and Grammy said not to cancel that. She'd rather we come down again in a few weeks after everyone has left and she's feeling lonely. :( So, Megan and I are planning to go down for a few days mid-June after school is out.

So sorry for your loss.

Awesome job on the picture displays!

So sorry for your loss. I am sure that layout you gave her means a whole lot more than you may think.
