We miss you, Great Grandma

I feel so blessed to have known each one of Johns Grandparents. Last Friday Grandma passed away. She has been talking about being with Grandpa for almost 9 years. She has really missed him since he died. My favorite memories are the times John and I spent in St. George with Grandma and Grandpa. I remember everynight kneeling by their bed for prayer. If it was Grandpas turn to pray Grandma also coached him on what to say just like I do with my 3 year olds now. She always made sure each of her children and grandchildren where prayed for. She had a strong testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will miss my visits with Grandma. We always shared tears when we talked. I could feel of her love for me each time we were together. She always treated me like I was one of her own.

Jay ended up with the flu on the morning of the funeral so I ended up running back and forth to be with him and with John and the funeral. The boys and I didn't make it up to the grave site so we drove up today to see. I have a picture of Jay with his dad and grandpa by in this exact spot about 8 years ago. You see when Grandpa died I was about 6 months pregnant with Jay. I remember Grandpa holding my hand after his stroke and listening to me talk about Jay and how he was going to carry on the family name and be the IV. Now here I am 6 months pregnant with a baby girl when Grandma dies.
