Good news and Bad news

First the good news we got to see and visit with a lot of family on both sides of the family. The bad news is that my Grandpa Ray passed away. He had 7 children, 20 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Everyone was there except for 2 great- grandchildren so it was a very nice reunion for everyone but wish it was under happier circumstances.

My Grandpa will be greatly missed. It was so nice to be in the Sunday morning meeting with all the family. It was a very rich meeting that I will never forget. I'm very thank-ful for the faithful example of my grandpa. He stayed steady and true. He loved his family and loved having them all together but most of all he wanted all those that he loved to realize that life has just one purpose.

Axel and Jonathon playing they are very close in age. Notice the shoes Axel found...he also found a little pink purse he carried around.
We took many family pictures but I didn't have my camera so I'll have to get the pictures from Weston or my mom and hopefully post them soon.

I'm so glad you put some pictures up Jacy! I missed you so much... thats funny that Axel took to the 'girly' stuff! Kent must have been so proud! :) That must have been really special to see all the family on the other side, it would have made Ray so happy to know everybody (pretty much) was there, and especially joy that so many do know what the purpose of life is. One thing Michelle had said, "Any experience that helps us let go of things on this earth and prepares us for the Homeland, is a priceless experience."
Love you all, Tiff
