Grandma's Funeral

Grandma Stum's funeral was on Saturday. It was so beautiful. Tons of family flew into town and it was so fun to spend time with all of them.

Brandon and I before the funeral.

Getting ready to head over to the cemetery.

At the graveside. Kristen, me, Amy.

The coffin and flowers were so beautiful.

My grandma's children (minus my mom). Mom, we all missed you there.

I have always loved funerals. As sad as they are, it is so fun to learn so much about the person who has passed on. They always make me want to live my life better so that hopefully someone will have something nice to say about me when I die. :)
It is still weird to think that Grandma is gone. Mom, we are so so sorry you couldn't be with us for all of this. But we know you are doing the right thing and are so proud of you for your decision to serve another mission.

That was such a great tribute to Grandma. I appreciate your insights too. Thanks for having Thanksgiving dinner with her at the hospital. It's so painful to be away but I too am grateful she was able to go quickly and be reunited with Grandpa. Love you,
