Grandma Glenny

My sweet grandma passed away on Saturday April 5th from complications to open heart surgery she had had earlier in the week. I was able to get a few days off and fly home for the funeral. It was a nice service and so wonderful to be with my family for a few days. Its times like this when family is most precious to me in my life. I'm grateful we were all there to support each other. The weather was so beautiful and I realized how much I miss Arizona.

Family Members who were unable to come: Joe Mason (Kirbi's Husband), Lillabeth Ann Mason (Great-Grand Child #1 and Kirbi's First), Victor Tanori (Lori's Boyfriend).

My siblings (this isn't even all of them).

Aww, so sorry to hear about your grandma. I just lost all three of my grandparents in a year (Oct '06 - Oct '07), so believe me, I know how it feels. It was so great, though, to see so much family. Glad you got to experience that, at least.
