Wordful Wednesday - Family

My Step Grandmother passed away on the 14th of May. She was 90 and had lived a full, happy life. She was a sweet lady and took such good care of my Grandpa and made him so happy. We traveled to Kemmerer, Wyoming to attend services for her and as always visited with my amazing family.

These are my cousins from Morgan, Utah. Actually, these are only the girls. From the left in the back is Linda in front of her is Georgene, Kimberly, Jennifer, Uncle Morris, Tiffany and Janeal. (Please forgive me if I spelled your names wrong!)

Here is my favorite Aunt Marsha (she paid me to say that!) whose name I suddenly forgot during the viewing. Must be my demitia kicking in again. On her left is my sister Kristin and her hubby Mark.

And here are my totally awesome, amazing Aunts. You all should be jealous that your aunts aren't as wonderul as mine! From the left is Merla, Jeanene, Brenda, Marsha and Diana. Missing is my Aunt Bonnie who lives in California. My Dad had all these sisters all to himself!

And finally, here is the rest of my family. The two sisters missing from last weeks picture. You can see who got the tall genes in the family and it definatley wasn't me! Again, from the left, Kristin, Marrla, my Step Mom Betty, Stephanie and Me.

The service was very nice and afterwards there was Ice Cream and Donuts!

Here is what Alex did for the 2 1/2 hours back home. I think this is his best side.

I am jealous of your aunts because my aunts were really not that cool at all. I think that's why I am a self-proclaimed "Coolest Aunt" ~ never had one, figured my nieces and nephews shouldn't have to do without!

Sorry about your loss but it looks like you got to see lots of great family!

How lovely that the funeral service was nice and that as you said goodbye, you got to visit with family.

It's always nice to visit with family even in sad circumstances.

Visiting from SITS.

Firstly...I loved seeing YOU!

Secondly...I'm so sorry for your loss. But what a blessing that you got to be with so many of your family members.

Love the pictures. Family is such a wonderful blessing... I love that I am part of a big one, and a close one!

I have a favorite Aunt Marsha (that we call Aunt Kay) and Steve's cousin and her family live in Morgan.

Funerals, at least they bring family all together if they didn't I wouldn't attend them. Sorry for her passing
