Home.

Grandma Betty is now in her final home -- the one where the golden streets out front never need sweeping. She's free from pain, and hanging out with her beloved Jesus.  Her "celebration of life" service was this past Friday evening, and the pastor spoke briefly on Psalm 23, and said if he had to summarize her life with 1 word, it would be faithful.  What a testimony! Truly, she leaves a wonderful legacy of faith through her family, both the legal and church varieties. (picture is from June, 2006, looking at the display that we'd made for her 90th birthday party)

Anyway, we drove out to Arizona for the service -- logged nearly 3000 miles in 9 days.  Sad time, but also nice to spend some time with family.  We were able to celebrate my MIL's bday as well as our nephew's, not to mention our 16th anniversary and Father's Day.  Yes, it was a busy time.  Will try to post pics later this week.

(used this song in a tribute slide show -- "All I know is I'm not home yet, this is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus..."
