Honoring Grandma Ella

My Grandma Ella passed away last month and while she lived a long life the loss was just tough for us all.  Her memorial service won’t be held until May when all of the extended family can travel to Kansas.  A friend suggested that we do something to honor her before then to get some closure.

So, my mom and sister came over with a pile of pictures, we made Grandma’s signature beef stew, baked cookies, shared stories, and remembered.

I have begun to really cherish that pile of old photographs.  It has inspired me to pick up the camera and document our family.  For my sake and future generations.
