Saying Goodbye...

The best way we know how...is having fun, laughing and sharing great memories!! My family and I have been in Memphis, TN since Wednesday am. We buried our Grandfather today with lots of family and friends, many we haven't seen in years! It was a great time of celebration. Celebration of life, of love and of family!

Enjoy some pictures. This should tide you over till I can get back into my routine at home and back to blogging regularly.

Grandpa told us tons of stories!! Our favorites were about Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and their Honeymoon. Here is a quick video of his Elvis story...he even sang us a quick song.
