Rest Well Grandma

This morning I missed a call from my Mom while my BF and I were at the bank and just from the sound of her voice in the voicemail I knew that something was wrong.  Last night my Grandmother passed away from lung cancer. My Grandmother June was a beautiful, strong, and loving woman.  She lived a fruitful life and was a rock for her family.

My father grew up in England, so my Grandmother, 2 of my Aunts, and one of my Uncles still live in Cornwall, England.  Being across the pond from half a my family has always been tough, and now more than ever it’s tough not being able to be with my Dad’s side of the family.  I hope that my Dad can fly to England soon to be with his siblings for the funeral.

Christmas in England- December 2008

I am so grateful for making the decision to fly to England back in 2008 to spend time with my Dad’s side of the family for the holidays.  I will never regret that trip!  Now, more than ever, I think back on the memories with my Grandmother and the lessons she taught me.  My thoughts and prayers are with my family and I hope my Grandmother rests in peace.

I love you Grandma!
