It may be a few days before I get the chance to post again. My Nanny died suddenly yesterday morning and I am home helping everyone with whatever they need. So no Sunday Lunch this week, although I had one planned, unless you wanna see a pic of the sandwich I am eating haha. I think I will make a post about her soon, maybe, considering all the talking I was doing to myself last night in my head it may help to put in into words on here. She is honestly one of the very few people in the world{all of which include her and my Pop} that I have never been mad or argued with, they are just that stinking perfect of grandparents/people/parents. I am just trying to handly this the way she would, and considering the wonderful since of humor our nutty family has it is a lot easier to cope by making joke about funny things she did. And I think that is what I am gonna keep doing...cause if she can't go shopping with me and talk bad about tacky clothes in the store I'll just have to do it by myself;)

  3. I'm very sorry for your loss! Do celebrate her life instead of focusing on her death...it seems that she would have wanted that.

  4. The day of my Poppa's funeral my Nannie looked at me and said, "I'm ready now." I could have died. The next day we took her to "check" on his grave. She looked down between the pile of dirt and the "neighbors," shook her head, looked at me and said, "I'm gonna have to lose weight to fit in there." I told her, "Nah, we'll just drop you in sideways." She was back to her self. One thing we shared was a wicked sense of humor and that's the stuff I focused on five years later when she passed. I think about her every day and miss her (and my Mimi) all the time. I cried when I told Leon, "Your Nannie would have LOVED you." Another thing we shared, a love of babies. At both of their funerals, we had "Precious Memories" sung. It fit! Focus on those wonderful memories. I does ease the pain of loss. But you'll never stop missing her. She's part of who you are. I wrote on my blog yesterday that you and your Nanny shared the same sense of humor. I saw it too.
    Take care of your mom. Losing my Nannie was hardest on my Momma.

  6. You're welcome, Em. I told your mom last night that I wouldn't be able to be there today and I hate that! I have to drive Sarah back to Hattiesburg today. It's 6 hours round trip and there's no way to work that around 2. I'm so sorry.
    BTW My Poppa Dad died on Good Friday and was buried on the day after Easter. We wore Easter clothes instead of black and he would have loved it. It's all about honoring the person you lost, not about what everyone else thinks. =)

  7. I will miss seeing her. I loved her smile and her laugh too! And man I really loved seeing her dance at your wedding. I got a big kick out of that! Oh and I thought what Jeremy said at the service was so funny! (About him being the favorite grandchild!) She would have gotten a kick out of that wouldnt she? You guys are in our prayers!

  8. Emily: Don't go shopping by yourself...you will really be considered a nut case if you're found wandering the aisles of the store muttering to yourself! Uncle Johnny and I are finally home today and I think he's having a pretty hard time of it. We've already watched the video. Time is (hopefully) on our side! Love and kisses
