I chose this picture for this post because the most comfort I get at this time of loss is thinking of Grandma and Grandpa being together again. I had the opportunity to visit with grandma shortly before she passed. We talked about everything from Grandpa and marriage to the color of her nail polish. It was such a special visit and a memory I will always carry in my heart.
