Sad news

Last night was a sad night for our family, my Grandma Sisson passed away. She has been sick for awhile and it was her time. I am relieved to know that she is not in pain and in a much better place. When I was back in Kansas last weekend I was able to go and see her. I am pretty sure she knew we were there. She will be greatly missed and was a wonderful Grandma.
Here is a picture of her meeting Hadley for the first time. My grandma's name is Doris Elizabeth, my aunt in Janet Elizabeth, I am Amber Elizabeth and Hadley gets to carry on the name with Hadley Elizabeth. I always knew my first girl would have the middle name Elizabeth and glad Grandma was able to meet her. Hadley doesn't look the happiest in this picture but we all remember she was not a happy baby.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of Grandma and me. This was Christmas 2004. Grandma had a love for giraffes and was always getting fun gifts. I was trying on her new hat. To this day when we see a giraffe in a book or at the zoo I remind Hadley that those are Grandma Great's favorites.Please pray for all of our family and especially for my Grandpa. I know this is a tough time for him and pray he is comforted and loved by all.

My sister wrote a great post here.

What a sweet post. I know how hard it is right now for you and your family but hang in there and stick together. Your grandma is in a much better place looking down on you and your family, I hope you can find comfort in that. God bless you! Love you.

So sorry to hear about your grandma. It's very fortunate that you have lots of great pictures of her and your time together. They will be a treasure. I love the giraffe hat! My prayers for you and your family.
