last night was tough.....

man was it hard. All the family (tons of us) gathered in the room to watch her picture video. Pictures from 1920's all the way up to this past Christmas. Such wonderful memories. So many of us were laughing...then crying...remembering....it was a wonderful family moment. We spent so much time in there watching the video that we almost missed our private viewing time.

so many people were there. People that new me from a little squirt. People I didn't know. Friends from work. the flowers were beautiful. She so loved flowers.

There was a very special moment.....my dad's friend David. He came up and gave me a hug. He told me a long time ago.....31 years ago..after my grandfather's funeral....a few days later...I came up to his truck and looked up to this "over 6 foot" man and said "Where is my pawpaw"...he looked down at this little blonde headed girl and told her "He's not here darlin...he's with Jesus."......so yesterday when that grown up blonde headed girl hugged that still very tall man...I looked up to him and said "Where's my Nanny".......and he looked down at me and said...darlin....she is in the same place. Rejoicing with Jesus.

You have brought me to tears. You have so many wonderful stories even through this trying time. I'm glad you have written them down. I hope that you will make some layouts about this and the butterflies.
