today was my grandma swineford's memorial service. it was in her home state, arizona, so i was not able to attend. the service was planned for today because it would have been my grandpa "bumpy" and grandma's 68th wedding anniversary. bumpy has been gone for probably 15 (?) years. so, today they get to spend their anniversary together...in heaven (praise the Lord that we know where they are!!)
i have very few memories of them. but, the ones i do have a great, fun ones. they will be missed. one thing that breaks my heart is that she never got to meet my baby moses. but, i am grateful that she did get to meet solly a few years ago & that he has some memories of that time.
weren't they adorable?
