A Loss

Pops' Grandmother Florence passed away today.

I didn't know her well, but I do know she was an intelligent, driven, hard-working woman and her pride was her family. She has eight children and a bounty of grands, great-grands, and even great-great grands to call her theirs.

We are thankful Pops' parents had already taken the trip to Montana to be with her. They were with her at the end and said she took her last breath and set her lips in determination in "the way that she does." It was as if it were her decision and she was now ready.

Thinking of her full life and feisty personality this evening. She will be deeply missed by many.


  1. Another loss... I'm sorry for the ache it leaves.

    Isn't it amazing how one's personality so often displays itself even in death?

  2. this has been an emotional spring/summer for your family. Glad they made it there in time.
