Not Goodbye, but See You Soon

Once again, I have been M.IA. Unfortunately it's due to Mike's grandmother passing away. A week ago she was fine, and then Thursday night she went int he hospital for emergency surgery and never came out. The funeral was today. M is doing good and is at peace with it. While she was fine a week ago, she has had some health problems over the years and I think her body was just exhausted. She was 70, and some may think that is old, but she could have lived another 10, 15, even 20 years - but it was her time.

Some of M's family came over to our house after the funeral today and I had sand which stuff, baked beans, potato salad, corn, chips and dip, cookies and good 'ol Key Lime pie. Everyone enjoyed it and enjoyed being together! I was glad to do it for his family! When you lose a loved one and come together as a family, it makes you realize how short life is and what means the most in life . . .family!!

I will be back hopefully tomorrow with the rest of my pics from Nashville. For those of you who knew about the passing of M's Grandmother, thank you for your thoughts and prayers, it means a lot to us both!

I am so sorry for the loss. Life really is so short. I lost my grandmother in February and it was sudden and sad. I am thinking of you guys.

So sorry. My husband's grandmother passed away last week as well. Such a sad time, but also good to get together with family.
