Hey guys. Sorry it’s been so quiet over here the past few days- we’ve had a tough week. On Wednesday my sweet grandmother (my dad’s mom- Grandma to me, GG to the kids) was put on hospice. She’d been in and out of the hospital several times within the past few months, but this time she was having major breathing issues and wasn’t responding to antibiotics. She passed away on Thursday, almost exactly 24 hours later. We were able to visit her on Wednesday night and tell her we loved her, but I don’t think any of us expected this to happen so quickly. I know in my heart she’s in a better place and I’m happy that she’s no longer suffering, but man we will miss her.
I love this picture of her…
Among other things, I definitely inherited my love of reading from her. I remember passing along books to her even when I was in middle school, and she would ALWAYS read them and then discuss with me after.

My pics of her were few and far between over the last couple of years. She wasn’t able to get out of the house, but I did manage to get one at her 90th birthday last year:
