Memorial Day

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

This Memorial Day was a bittersweet one. My dear, sweet grandmother and last grandparent passed away recently and her Memorial Service was held over the weekend. My mom asked me to design her programs and of course I was honored to do so.

This is just one page from her program (my favorite).

My mom worked hard over the past few weeks to organize the 
entire thing and did a beautiful job. We scattered her ashes over 
my Papa's grave while my cousin sang Amazing Grace, then 
the family released 15 butterflies at the cemetery.  

She is definitely missed and... honestly... there are no words 
in these kinds of situations - it's simply a part of life we all 
must deal with at some point I guess... but I found a 
beautiful quote that I think describes it best: 
"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal... 
but love leaves a memory no one can steal."

We love you GG.
