This summer has been one of the most life changing of my life. On June 29th 2012 I lost one of the most influential people in my life:
My sweet Grandma Honey
She was diagnosed with bladder cancer over memorial day weekend and was placed on hospice within days and lived longer than anyone expected: 4 long and painful weeks.
|Reva Helen Atkin Truman|
November 17 1933-June 29 2012
I love this lady so incredibly much and looked up to her probably more than just about anyone. She was a very loving and talented woman.
I just want to pay tribute to this incredible lady of a minute:
|This is her at probably age 5|
|Wasn't she a fox?!|
|On the day she became Mrs. Bill Truman (age 18)|
|On their honeymoon to Colorado|
|One week before she passed...look at the love and worry in his eyes as he looks at her|
|One of the last times she was able to talk to me.|
I was privileged to be close by when her spirit left this earth life behind, along with my grandpa, my dad, my baby sister, Lori and my two boys. It was a very special experience that I haven't been able to put into words yet...one day I hope to put into words my feeling from that night.
|My dad is her oldest child|
|I am her oldest (and favorite) grandchild|
I love her and miss the heck out of her. I know that there is a plan for this life and that I will see her again, I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ for providing the path for for us to follow, I do not know how I would be able to find peace in this loss with out it!
