Well, we lost my husband's Grandmother today. She was 94 years young and sharp as a tack. We've been expecting it for about 6 weeks now, but it still hurts when it happens.
This is Grammie and my Father-in-Law.
She was a pistol!! She kept her entire family on their toes.
Her favorite saying was "manja manja! An empty bag blows away in the wind."
NO PROBLEM GRAMMIE!!
This is Grammie and her great-grandchildren from her son's family - my in-laws.
They are in the picture too.
Those two on the right are my sons. Pretty cool to be in your 20s
and be able to say your Great-Grandma is still still alive - huh?
I had a Christmas family reunion Dec 2007 up at our place. There was Grammie, her 2 kids and one spouse, their 6 kids and 5 spouses (grandchildren) and their 10 kids (great-grandchildren). There was a slew of us! I had to rent extra tables and chairs and just sat everyone down right on into the entry so we could all sit down together.
All of these people - just because of two people who fell in love, got married and started a family back in the 1930's.
Kind of awesome when you think about it.
Grammie's birthday was on Christmas Day.
We'll miss you Grammie. Love you.
ps. say Hi to Grandpa-the-great and Harry from all of us!
