In Memory of...

well today marks the one year anniversary of my mother in laws passing. its been so hard trying to go on without her. she was such an amazing person. I just can't believe she is actually gone. We all miss her so much! We wish you were here with us still. It has been such a hard adjustment for my kids, especially the boys. they basically lived at grandma's house from the time they were born. she was always tending them for us so we could go to school, work, etc. they loved going to her house and spending time with her. its hard because sometimes they wonder why they had their grandma taken away so soon and that she isn't here to watch them grow up. how blessed we are that we know we will be with her again!
We love you Grandma Sheen!

this is the last picture I have of grandma and brynlee before we found out about her cancer. it is so special to me.

this is the first time the kids got to see grandma after her surgery. they were so excited to see her.

this is on a sunday. grandma had to give a talk in sacrament meeting and she wanted braxton to give a short talk with her. she was soo proud of him.

It is very hard to lose a parent. I know we all still miss Wayne, and it feelslike yesterday that he passed whenever we are in their house. I am soory for your loss and Josh's, I would love to say it gets better, but it doesn't, the grief just changes and evolves. Hold on to the memories and share them with your children it is a good way to keep her memory strong.

i cannot believe it's already been a year! my best memories of shirlene were at girls camp - can you believe she was our camp director? it was probably the year i remember most.

Those pictures are so sweet. Your kids will love and cherish those pictures forever. I was teary looking at them. I can't imagine how hard that would be. I don't know when we are comming down again. Probably not for awhile. We have a lot going on. Next time I come down I'll call you.
