This weekend we went to San Antonio for Gramps’ Memorial.
Before we left, we had a conversation with Mallory:
Daddy: “We are going to Aunt Patsy’s house, but Gramps will not be there.”
Daddy: “Because she is in Heaven.”
Mallory: As she is looking up, “Why?”
Daddy: “Because sometimes when you get sick, you go see God in Heaven.”
Mallory: “When she gets better, will she come back down here?”
Mommy: “You know how God made us all? Well, when we get older, we go to Heaven to live with God.”
Mallory: “Well, when y’all grow up big and go to Heaven, I won’t have a family.”
Daddy: “That won’t be for a long time.”
Mallory: Looking up she asks, “How did Gramps get way up there?”
Daddy: “Angels helped her.”
Gramps was 94; she had a long, wonderful life. We all wanted to celebrate her life, so we had a Luau celebration at Aunt Patsy’s house. It was good to see all the family while remembering Gramps and our love for her.
Paige and Mallory swimming in Aunt Patsy’s pool…
She was not a big fan of the life jacket…she couldn’t keep herself upright…
Playing with Mitch…
Before we left to go back to our hotel, Mallory and Paige gave Mimi her Mother’s Day gifts…
How precious are they listening to Mimi read her card…
Mallory gave Mimi a super cute wallet with dogs all over it…Mimi loves dogs. She and Granddad always babysit Daisy when we go out of town, and we appreciate it so much! And, Mimi is even taking Gramps’ dog home with her :o) Looks like Mimi likes it and Paige, too!
Mallory had to point out her favorite…
