A Sad Goodbye to the Life of the Party

Cole did the heart w/my necklace

I thought it was perfect for this post

This past Saturday we say good bye to my grandmother (or GG for my boys).  I will remember her as the life of the party.  I had the pleasure of meeting her when I was 9, I was brought into the family when I was 10 year old. 

GG was a bus driver for special needs kids and how they loved her.  Bus drivers stick together threw thick and thin.  You always hear fun stories of these ladies and there tocken guy.  They would go on vacations together to fun sunny place and lord be with anyone that was near them they would become part of the party and a story to that would last a life time!

I will always remember this fun lady that was bigger then life.  She would serve you the best drink and there would be no shortage of laughs.  She may even give you a little goose, she sure liked young cute men … LOL.  Rick’s first Christmas he came up to me “Your Grandma just goosed me”, we all turned and said “Welcome to the Family” … hehe.

We had some great memories that I will never forget.  My boys enjoyed their time with her and our Thanksgiving dinner will never be the same.

Some of my favorite photos:

Rest in peace GG, we will miss you and your laugh!  I’m closing with mom’s favorite poem and I believe will be at the funeral.

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
No Farewell words were spoken
No time to say good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.

My heart's still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment
