I'm struggling to find the words. I know how hard the loss of my grandmas was for me. I'm sorry you are sad.

What a blessing to live such a long life and to meet 39 great grandchildren!

Ahh... Kim, what a very touching post. And coincidentally I have only just posted about my own Grandmother too! Nan's are so special aren't they?
Wow - Yours was obviously a very busy lady. Maybe you could now paint a series of memories. I have just painted and posted one of mine :0)

I'm so sorry about losing your Grandmother Kim. I'm sending you all the love and hugs from Utah that I can. I've been thinking about you a lot lately and hoping you are well. I guess you're not though at a time like this. But even though we're far away, and technically never met, I'm still here for you my friend, and hoping that you are ok.

Love the photo, quote, and note about your grandmother.
