Today has been a tough day to say the least. Michael's grandmother, Meme, passed away this morning after suffering through a series of illnesses which gradually weakened her over the past few months. Now I find myself trying to come up with words to describe what an amazing person she was. To simply say that she loved and cared for her family, or that she selflessly gave of herself to help others, or that she was patient and kind to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren cannot begin to describe her and what she meant to our family. In fact the only thing that's seems more difficult to me is putting into words how much she was loved. Or how much she will be missed.

I feel very blessed to have gotten the chance to know and love Meme over the past ten years. I used to kid with Michael and say the only reason I married him for his amazing family ;) If you have a minute tonight, please say a prayer for us all as we go through this difficult time.
