Bitter Sweet

(My Grandmother and I when I was a baby)
My sweet grandmother Carolyn Grimaud passed away Wednesday, June 25, 2008 at 7:37 pm. She was only 72 years old. This is a bitter sweet time for all in our family because for the past seven years my grandmother has suffered from Alzheimer's disease. She was an amazing lady who loved everyone she met. She is an angel and I am so sad that she has left this earthly life. However, I am comforted to know that she is in Heaven without pain and with a sound mind. I know that she will be with us always and that someday I will get to see her smiling face again. I love you Grandma and I will miss you very much!

Work Work Work

In May Dru just graduated from ISU with his Bachelor's degree in Finance. I am so proud of him! To make things even better a couple of weeks ago he started a job with Westmark Credit Union and LOVES it. I am so excited for him to be done with school and enjoy the workin life. It will also be nice to have some extra income. As for me I am still working as a PSR worker and trying to keep a clean house (it is much harder than it seems). I planted flowers in my yard for the very first time a week before Memorial Day and I haven't killed them yet. They are actually looking really good and I am proud of my efforts. So as you can see we have had a lot going on lately but it's always good to stay busy.
