Grandma's Funeral

Grandma's funeral was today. It was an extremely difficult day for all the people that loved her so dearly. 
It was a beautiful service. My mom's part of the Eulogy was awesome. She was funny and made everyone remember all the amazing things my grandma taught her and us. (I will see if I can steal it to post later).

Alyssa was feeling much better today... She was spinning this chair all around and driving this mommy a touch crazy. 
 She looked at me and said "Mom I hiding." Poor girl knocked her chair over backwards within seconds of me snapping this picture!
 My beautiful family! This is the best one we could get because Kait was having a very rough day.
This is the best one of everyone else, but she is being a touch grumpy.
During the service, all the grandkids and great grandkids got up to sing "I am a Child of God."
 The pall bearers carrying Grandma's body to it's final resting place.

 Kevin was an honorary pall bearer. That is him on the right of the picture.

 Grandma chose this casket herself. It is just beautiful.
 Alyssa just loved Laurie!
