In Loving Memory

Last Saturday Hubbys Grandfather passed into the next life. He was such a wonderful man, and a great example of what a father, and grandfather should be. Although I didn't know him for very long, I felt loved and accepted by him. He had a way about him, you knew where you stood with him, and he wasn't afraid to let you know it. I know that some day Hubby will be just like him. Fortunately Hubby and his older sister were able to go to his funeral this week. They said it was a beautiful service and they celebrated his life the way he lived it. Hubby and his male cousins were the pall bearers and the granddaughters also helped in the service. Hubby got to read a passage in the Bible (I'll update later). I missed being there and supporting them, but at least they got to go. They are such a wonderful family and he will truely be missed, but he left behind his strenghth in everyone he touched.
Here is his obituary.
We love you Grandpa, and I know we will see you again in the next life.

Making Strides

This last weekend I went with my Sister-In-Law (Hubbys older sister), to the Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Salt Lake City.  It was cold and rainy, but it didn't stop people from coming out and supporting the cause. 
I don't normally voice my opinions on causes, but I have near and dear personal reasons for supporting the fight against breast cancer.  It was amazing to see all the people of all walks of life that have been touched by the effects of Breast Cancer.  I was only able to do half of the 5 mile walk, but next year we are planning on doing all 5 miles. 
I encourage all you women who read this blog, to check your boobies once a month, especially if you have a family history of Breast Cancer.  Early detection is the greated weapon we have against the desease. 
Go to the Making Strides website to find an event near you.
