The "Farewell"

Yesterday was Grandma's "Farewell."
No, it was not a funeral. 
We will see her again someday.

The day was beautiful.
The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the angels were singing.
All of it was for her... For our dear Grandma Ruth.

Grandma's single, yellow rose. Her wish.

We sure do pray for Grandpa.
He has lost the love of his life for a short period of time.
We admire his strength.

Grandma asked my dear husband to speak at the services prior to the burial.
He did a wonderful job.
I know Grandma loved it.

Ryker was such a good boy throughout the entire day!
We were some proud parents.

We are very grateful that families can be together forever.

It was nice to spend some time with Austin's siblings.
We were able to laugh, joke, and reminisce on memories of Grandma.

Grandma was loved by so many people.

Grandpa told us to take some of that love home.
Now, we can each have a sweet, little reminder of Grandma's Farewell with us for some time.

The day was perfect.
We love you Grandma!
