Goodbye

Today we said goodbye to the real summer vacation. Callie starts the fourth grade tomorrow. We'll miss her, but I'm sure we'll also enjoy these last few days before things get crazy with preschool and Church activities that come with September.

Today we'll go to say a final farewell to my great aunt, Aunt Clara. Over the years we've lost all of my granfather's siblings and Aunt Clara was the last of their spouses. I'll always remember her sweet voice, seeing her hair out of a bun for the first time (I had no idea it was so long and thought it was strange that and "old" lady would have long hair) and hearing her repeat the last line of a certain soap opera before it went to commercial.

Seven years ago, we said goodbye to my Grandma D. I can still remember way too many things about the last day/night/late night/early morning of her life. I had been with countless people (patients) at the hospital as they died without their family by their side, but my grandmother was surrounded by her family.

It's already been a big week and hopefully the jumble will be out of my head soon and I'll be able to function again.

Goodbyes are never easy! I hate them actually but they are a part of life.

I'm so sorry about the goodbye's lately for your family. I know you'll always remember the good or unique things about your aunt - but it still is so sad when a goodbye comes. Thinking of you...and thanking you for your kind words. Lots of prayers to you and your family.

At first I thought you were saying goodbye to blogging! I hope the school year goes great!

That Goodbye yesterday was the hardest one ever! Thank you for coming and showing your love and respect to my Grandma! She was a special lady to all who knew her:)
