Grandpa's Funeral

It is hard to believe that the funeral was a week ago today.... It was such a beautiful day; clear and not to cold. The part of the day that really touched me and my family would have to have been the graveside services- The members of the American Legion who did the military tribute did an amazing job especially the three young men who fold the flag. When they presented the flag to my mother (which my grandfather had requested) we all got pretty teary eyed.

If the week before the funeral we went through pictures to put in a slide show and I found this one I had forgotten about....
It almost seems surreal that all my grandparents are gone now.....
I am so grateful to know 'the plan' and that we can be together forever.
Here are some pictures from the funeral that I swiped from my sister Chelsea's blog

This is the flower arrangement that I made for the funeral and one of the one's I made for the pallbearers. I have done some flower arranging before but it's been awhile and I was very happy/relieved with how they turned out.
