A Moment of Silence

This isn’t stamping related but I’m taking a day’s break today from my typical stamping projects and having a virtual moment of silence for my grandfather. 

My grandfather had been struggling with Alzheimers for the last almost 10 years and had reached the point this year of requiring around the clock care and management.  Admirably, my grandmother stood by and supported and cared for him in their home that whole time until late this summer when she realized she needed more help and he moved into a hospice care home.  Sadly, last week he passed away and today is the funeral.  So, I am in Arizona to spend time with family and remember the man that could be stern and spunky all at the same time.

So, with that – I am taking today to remember my lost loved one and hoping all of you are surrounded by family and friends who love and support you.  Our cards, scrapbook pages, and other projects are neat to look at, but they are special because of the love and care we put into them that can be felt by those who view and receive them.  So, here is to family and friends and the love and support we can share with each other.

And to Grandpa, we love you and will miss you.  JAW 1925 – 2010
