It has been forever since I updated the blog.
The day before Christmas my laptop
decided it had lived a nice life and was ready to retire!
It took till yesterday to secure a replacement.
I am so thankful that they were
able to recover all my files and photos!
What a blessing!
The week after Thanksgiving our family suffered
the loss of our precious Grandma (Great Grandma),
Her wishes were not to have a traditional funeral here in town.
Instead we will be holding a memorial service during
the annual family reunion in August.
But that left us feeling a little "empty".
So taking an idea from my dear blog friend Christine,
the family here decided to hold a balloon launch
in honor of our Nona.
We all wrote out messages and memories...
... on colorful balloons.
Letting her know just how loved
and remembered she was and is to us!
We all went outside and
sang her favorite Christmas carol
Then sent the Balloons towards Heaven!
We love you Nona!
