The Last 10 Days

The last ten days have been pretty busy. Sadly, a majority of the busyness was due to Beth's Grandma passing away on Wednesday morning in Toledo, OH. After finding out, we all hurried to get things together before leaving on Thursday night. Stacy met us in Tulsa and flew with us to Chicago before heading on to Detroit and meeting Beth's Mom and Janet.

The past few days have been emotional to say the least. And although there were a lot of sad moments, there was also a lot of happiness remembering her. Beth's Grandma was a great lady and she will be missed dearly. Fortunately for those who believe, we know that she is at peace and without pain. And we will see her again someday.

Over the past 4 years, we have gone up to Toledo in July for the Jamie Farr LPGA golf tournament. It was a little strange going up there in January with snow all over the ground and the weather being so gloomy. We got to spend a lot of great time with all of Beth's family including her aunts and uncles and six cousins. We also got to meet a lot of people who had great things to say about Beth's Grandma. Beth's Aunt Kathy did an unbelievable job coordinating meals and along with Aunt Gigi made some of the best breakfast food I think I've ever had. It was fun to share meals with everyone and spend time with Beth's great extended family. And we look forward to seeing everyone again in July for the LPGA tournament.
