Thoughts... in pictures

We had a great few days with family celebrating the life of Grandpa B. It was good to sit around with family and talk about Grandpa. I think we each learned something new about Grandpa. I wanted to share a few pictures with you without sharing the intimate ones:

Bethany putting her sheet music (aka her coloring pages) on the organ so she could play it:

Ryan helping cousin Isaac tie his first tie.
Where does she get these kind of moves? And why does she know to shake her butt the way she does and take pictures looking like this. I must say she loves her new pink chuckie-t's:

The older of the B great-grandchildren. The other two are younger and didn't make the picture. The kids each wore one of their Great Grandpa's old sailor hats:

The B Family.

It was a cold walk:

The 3 older boys standing over the headstone:

I still haven't had time to put my thoughts on paper that would be a good story to read and at the same time honor Ryan's Grandpa. He was a wonderful man who loved to serve others, was a gifted word-worker and quite the handy man. At the burial and funeral, Pastor Joe did an amazing job telling about Grandpa and sharing Jesus. During the funeral, Ryan eulogized his grandfather and did an amazing job sharing. Ryan is quite talented and speaking publicly and I'm not sure if there was a dry eye in the place when he walked off the stage.

My grandfather was a very good man and had to live 2 years without his wife. I only wish I had spent more time with him during that period.
Very nice family blog!
