Friday Smile - My Grandma

This past weekend my Grandma (on my Mom's side) passed away.  I wasn't going to put any pictures on here or even mention it, but as I thought about what to do for this weeks Friday Smile, I kept thinking of a picture I had of my Grandma. It was from my wedding, almost 6 years ago.  It's one of the best pictures we have of her later in life.  Well, at least I think it is.    So..I thought I would share a picture or two of my Grandma.  I wish I had some of the older pictures of her.  I adore her wedding picture.   My grandma would have been 96 on the 22nd of this month. I hope I live as long and as full a life as she did.

I also thought I would share with you just how large my Mom's side of the family is.   My Grandma has 8 living children, 19 grandchildren, 21 (#22 is due in August) great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren.  Isn't that just amazing and crazy?

This is a picture of my Grandma and her 8 living children from 6 years ago at her 90th b-day party.

Thank you everyone! Its hard on the family right now, but we know she is pain free and with her husband and in a better place than she has been these last several months, and that gives us some comfort.
