my grandpa's funeral

The day before Presley's birthday my sweet grandpa passed away. I was extremely close to him and it was so hard on me. His passing was the first one that really affected me the much. I spent my whole childhood just minutes away from my grandparents and I went to their house every day after school. I love all my grandparents but my grandpa and I had a special relationship that I will never forget.


 We traveled back to Utah to attend his funeral and I'm so glad I was able to make it. I got to see family members that I haven't seen in years! My grandpa was a WW2 vet and he really bonded with Dave about the military over the last few years. They would talk about it for hours every time they saw each other. I could listen to his stories forever! So once he passed we were able to inherit a lot of his old military items and things that meant the world to my grandpa, which now means the world to me. We brought home a lot of priceless items that I'm so excited about!

Because he was a WW2 vet he had a military style funeral and Dave was able to be a part of it. It was such a neat experience and I'm so glad he did it!

 Pictures of all the grand kids. My grandpa left behind 41 grand kids and 102 great grand kids. Amazing!

I can't wait to see my grandparents again someday!
