Two weeks ago we attended Matson's GG's (or Gorgeous Grandma's) funeral. Although I did not know GG for more than 3 years, I still feel very close to her and I feel as though she is my own Grandma. Funerals are hard and this was especially hard for us both since this was our first grandparent to pass away (my dad's dad who I maybe saw 3 times in my life passed away a few years ago, yet I had close to no relationship with him). The hardest thing for me was to see Matson's Grandpa lose his wife. I love Grandpa and feel as though we have a special, fun relationship. He is always calling me his sweetheart, teasing me, and over the few days we were with him for the funeral, he continually was asking me to just love him and telling me, "all I need is love." My heart breaks for him and I cannot imagine what he is going through.
The flowers from all the grandchildren.
Even though the last little while has been a hard time for us and our family, we were able to stay positive through laughs and memories of GG and from our little nephew's cute smiles throughout the weekend. It is amazing how much joy and happiness one little boy can bring so many.
We love you GG and we know we will see you again soon!
