So Long, Farewell, Alvederzane, Goodbye...

My grandmother passed away recently and we laid her to rest on Saturday.  She lived a long and full 96 years and was loved by many. There was a beautiful graveside service, during which many wonderful memories were shared.  I lovingly dedicate this post to her.  She was one in a million...

Things My Grandmother Taught Me

1.  The most important thing in this life is family.

2.  It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

3.  A smile can go a long way and laughter really is the best medicine!

4.  Believe in yourself and that you can have anything you're willing to work hard for.

5.  A simple faith in God and Jesus Christ will get you through life's challenges.

6.  Sing, Dance, Act, Live!

7.  Take care of yourself while you're young enough to do something about it.

8.  Work hard, play hard.

9.  See's really does have the best candy!


10.  I was her favorite grandchild (but so was everyone else!).

It is not goodbye, Grandma, but only farewell.  God be with you 'til we meet again...

That was a great post! I didn't know your grandma very well but it was fun to learn more about her through the funeral and your post! She sure was a neat lady!
