Missing Granny

It has been a rough past couple of weeks in our family. My Granny was put in the hospital and then passed away on Saturday. Brook was her first great-grandchild and they had a special bond. She was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease a few years ago and she hasnt been the same since.


Here is my Granny rocking Brook after she was born!



Here is another picture of Brook and Granny this past year.




This was from Halloween when we went trick-or-treating. Granny's house was the only place we stopped with our little zebra. Granny has had this Halloween shirt since I was a little girl.


Brook has not been much of a talker.......she hasnt switched to English yet, but she was able to start calling Granny...Nanny during the many visits at the hospital. It was so sweet to see her kiss her night night each night when we left and say Nanny to her.

I am so glad that my daughter got to know such an important person in our family!

I know just how you feel Cassi...I was lucky to have my grandmother for a long while and grateful that she was able to come to know our children. She left a lasting impact on our family as I know your grandmother did with your family. I'm so sorry to hear this very sad news and hope that you and your family are coping well. Hugs to you and yours!
