We’ll Be Missing You, Red.

Today was a hard day for my family.  We all gathered together and said our final goodbye to my husband’s grandmother, Dorothy.  I wish I had the right words to describe this incredible woman to you all.  She was fierce.  She was funny.  She was sassy.  She was loyal.  And more than anything else…she was loving.

I’ve met very few people in my life that loved and cared for their family and friends with the same type of intensity that Grandma did.  This was a woman who never met a stranger, and would go out of her way to make you feel at ease when you may have felt lost without her.

She had the best jokes, and threw the most amazing get-togethers.  A woman after my own heart, she had such a flair for entertaining.  You never went into her home without being greeted by an adorable arrangement of eats and treats.

I wish I had the time, or the R-Ratings, to tell you some of the stories!  She was not beneath sharing her snort with Santa, or pinching your husband’s butt when he walked through the door.  If we all had a little bit of her fire, I truly believe this world would be a better place.

Though, I’m grateful that she will no longer be suffering the pains that kept her down in the end, I’m feeling incredibly selfish.  The world has lost quite a lady, but we should all just be thankful we had her at all!

We love you, Granny and will miss you always.
