Grandma Great's Funeral

Grandpa Dan's Mom passed away on March 4th.  I will miss our political debates and fun discussions on DUP and Utah History. The girls will really miss their "Grandma Great". However, I'm so happy she's with her husband and family on the other side.  Here is a pic of each of my girls with her as well as a recent one of her at the 4th of July party in 2012.
Dan got really sick with a new bout of cancer and drug reactions at the same time.  We were able to help a bit with soup, at the ER, and borrowing my folks' wheelchair, but it was a rough time.

The funeral was on Saturday March 8 at the exact same time as my nephew Jeff's wedding.  I was able to make it to about a half hour of the viewing.  Since the girls couldn't come in the temple, Jason kept Laura and Eliza (Sara had a dress rehearsal at the same time as the wedding and funeral and was cared for by Karyn - thank you - and another dance mom) at the funeral with him.

Laura was asked to sing and threw together a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace at the last minute for the program.  Thank you Mom and her piano teacher Doris for helping us get that together for her.

Jason said the funeral was lovely as was the graveside.  He took these pics for the blog - thanks honey!

  1. Sorry it was such a stressful time. I'm glad you were able to spend a little bit of time doing everything. So nice to have a picture of each one of your children with Grandma Great.

  2. It was great to spend the day with family and remember the sweet life of Grandma Great.
