For My Grampa

My grandfather passed away yesterday (Saturday) morning, and my family is pretty devastated. It’s been a long time coming, and he lived a full, wonderful life. Still – he will be greatly missed. I’m so glad he got the chance to meet my daughter and I will forever cherish the memory of our last visit early this spring.

I made two cards – one for my dear sweet grandmother, who is handling this with all the grace a wife of 67 years can. Ever the stalwart family matriarch, it is Gramma who is holding us all together. For her I chose Baroque Motifs. And simply the word cherish. I think that says it all.

For my dad I chose Lovely As A Tree. Simple, soothing. I haven’t talked to him yet – he spent today on the golf course, where I am sure he feels close to my Grampa.

For all of the details on both of these cards, please see my SCS gallery. I just can’t get through typing it all out again – I hope you understand. I linked each card to its corresponding upload in my gallery.

Our family is planning a two day gathering next weekend in Pinehurst, NC to celebrate Grampa. He pretty much put the whole thing together before he passed – that’s just his style. If you can spare a minute, I’d appreciate happy thoughts for the safe travel of all our loved ones this week, as we make our way down to say goodbye. Thanks.
