Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day here in the US.  It's a holiday to commemorate US men & women lost while fighting for our country.   While I honor & thank those who've lost their lives serving our country,  I also reflect on remembering my family members who've passed.

My maternal grandpa was a glider pilot in WWII who thankfully returned home and led a long life.  He passed away 10 years ago on Veteran's Day (very fitting) 
A couple weekends ago we celebrated my beloved maternal grandma who passed away from brain cancer at the age of 91.
She lived a long full, happy life.  She was a wonderful grandma to me and an even better great grandma to my kids and nephews.  She will forever be missed but her creative spirit lives on in my kids.
