We arrived in Arlington today and will attend Keith’s Mom’s funeral tomorrow. Becky and Rae won’t attend the funeral but Chris took them out to Arlington National Cemetery today to see his grandfather’s grave site (or niche) where his grandmother will be laid to rest tomorrow. I know how much it means to Keith to be surrounded by family as he buries his mother.
Rae also played and read and cuddled with her Gram and Pop.
We spent some time talking about our memories and since we’re sharing photos of Rae, this is one of my favorite photos of Keith’s Mom from this last year – Chris, Becky, and Rae were visiting us in FL. I love how Shirl and Rae are looking at each other.
And since we’re saying goodbye to both Chesty and Keith’s Mom this week – here’s another favorite photo of mine from this past year.
We’re also lucky that we’ll get to see my Mom while we’re here thanks to my sister driving down and bringing Mom to her house and then hosting us all on Saturday. I know Mom’s happy to be able to see Keith, Rae, Chris and Becky (me she sees all the time) and Rae’s thrilled that she gets to see HER granny! Unfortunately for my family, Adam has to go home right after the funeral.
