Yesterday was my Grandmother's Memorial Service.
We had to wait for my parents to return from their home in Florida

It was her time and I wouldn't have wanted her to live in pain, but I am feeling sad even though she died in January and I have had time to grieve. Grandmother was 101 last October.

My Dad's mother (the grandmother I was named after) has been dead for 15 years. My parents are in their 80's now and not doing many of the things they used to do/enjoy. I guess it's our turn to tend the graves on Memorial Days.

And I guess it's time to start cleaning out our home and simplifying, so that our sons will have an easier time - eventually.

At least our granddaughter was able to attend, with our older son. She got to meet family members for the first time. Even though family came from as far away as N. Carolina, there were so few of us now.

It is amazing that we have had a 5 generation family for nearly 20 years.
