Grandma Gibby Funeral - December 29

Today I attended the funeral service for my Grandma Gibby. She had just turned 94 at the end of September this year. She had been in relatively good health for her age until she fell and broke her ankle the day after Thanksgiving. She passed away peacefully in her home where she had lived for almost 75 years. It was a beautiful service on a cold and blustery winter day. I felt bad for my sister, Rachelle, and her family that were unable to attend the funeral because of bad weather. I am grateful that I was able to know my Grandmother for so many years. It was good to see so many friends and relatives from my father's and mother's families.
