Thanks for the kind words. That means a lot.
We did enjoy ourselves. There was some sadness by some, but not much... I have a very "She is in a better place, with Grandpa" ... "celebrate her life" ... "she would want us to be happy" type family. We laughed and had a good time. Good to have everyone there. Makes me wish I could see my family more often... and why don't we... 90% of us live in the Twin Cities.

I think so too. I look on it pretty well, Some people might mope around, complain, etc... Not really my style. Nothing I could change, and I'm not gonna look at the past and get upset. It was Grandma's time and now she's with Grandpa. Part of life
Losing 3 grandparents this year was hard on a lot of my family. Get togethers will be even tougher without a Grandparent's house to go to. Hopefully someone (maybe my wife and I) will step up and get everyone together.
