We Lost A Friend

A death is a sad time so to brighten this up slightly I captured some flowers to honor this loss.
I was pallbearer at a funeral for a friend. Boodie at 82 years old was the great grandmother of my grandchildren on the in-law side of the family. We were always together for holidays at my daughter's house so I consider her part of my family. She has been fighting illness for the last 7 years. She and Papa had a 65th Wedding Anniversary in June. I had a lot of respect for her and was honored to be involved in the funeral. This is a photo from the anniversary party in June. She was a wonderful great grandmother and will be missed by all who knew her. She was an avid golfer and my youngest grandson wrote her a wonderful goodbye with a golf cart drawing which went in the casket with her.
This was another flower from the wake which will be planted in her remembrance.
Goodbye Boodie, we did love you and your wonderful spirit.
