** Again this is a week late. Sorry. I started it last week, but then did not have a chance to finish it until now. Maybe one of these days I will actually write about things when they occur.
Papa and Noah (Tuesday, April 21, 2009)
This past weekend was a time of joy and sadness. My Papa died last Friday and went to be with God in Heaven. He was a wonderful man who loved his God and his family more than anything. He was very witty, funny, thrifty, practical, but most of all loving. He lived for 93 years and was married to my Grandma for 68 of those. This weekend the entire family gathered to celebrate his life. We laughed and cried and just spent time together remembering. Here are some pictures of the weekend.

The Grandkids (minus one)
The Great Grandkids (minus several)
Greats and Grands (minus one grand and several greats)
Noah did great the whole weekend. Unfortunately, this is how he took most of his naps (in our arms) making the next week a bit difficult. There were a lot of tears shed at nap times the next week.
My siblings and I stopped by their old house.
Goodbye Papa! We love you, miss you, and can't wait to see you again!!
