Remembering Great Grandpa

Last week we traveled up north for Great Grandpa Fred's funeral and reception.  Jake and I were so glad that we made the trip up to visit with him in June and have Skylar meet him for the first time when we did.  We arrived just in time for dinner with the whole family.  As you can tell, it wasn't easy getting everyone to pay attention to the camera with such a big group.

Skylar and her cousin's enjoying cartoons in the hotel before the service.  I think Skylar is finally at the age where the boys find her interesting.  Last time they saw her she was only 6 months and wasn't  much fun, so it was cute to see them playing together this time around.

The service was very lovely and a nice tribute to Fred.  Mary, Suzie and Sherry did a wonderful job putting it all together and I think Fred would of been proud.  Skylar made it through the whole service until the very end when she needed a nap.

After the service we headed to the reception where everyone dined on delicious food and shared their memories of Fred.  Skylar was in heaven because she was able to run around the whole restaurant and play with her cousins.

Even though the trip was extremely quick for us, we were so glad we were able to be there with the whole family and celebrate the life of such a wonderful Husband, Father, Grandpa, and Great-Grandpa!

  1. Thank you for this heartfelt tribute to our Dad, Nicole. It is not a bad thing that I could not keep my tears back. I sure hope someone in heaven is helping him with his computer skills so he can enjoy your blog.
