Grandma Bishop

My Grandma Bishop passed away in her sleep on Sunday night, the week of Christmas. It was very unexpected to me. Apparently she got a cough the Wednesday before and my dad suspected this might take her but he didn't even let me know she was sick. I had been meaning to take my kids to go visit her and I wish I would have, but I am very glad that I was able to spend so much time with her the last couple of years. When we lived in my parents' house when Mckinley was almost 2, Mckinley and I went and visited her several times a week. She really loved Mckinley. And of course she was so excited to hear I was expecting twins because she had twins as well. We used to talk a lot about that. And she just loved seeing Tyler and Kallie every chance she got.

This card I got from her on Christmas Eve was a little extra special this year...

It was so nice to see so many relatives and friends at her viewing the night before, and at her funeral on Monday.

Some of the displays of her artwork and the dolls she collected.

At the cemetery.

Almost all 40 of her grandchildren. I am so glad we got to grow up on the same street together our whole lives. I love all of these people!

Mckinley loved Great Grandma Bishop so much and would always tell her that her dress or necklace was very pretty.

I thought for sure I had a more recent picture of Tyler and Kallie with her but I can't find it anywhere!!
