Grandma and Pappy

I have been going through my pictures and trying to organize them and I would like to share a few with you of my Grandma and Pappy.....

This is my grandma!! ISN'T SHE CUTE??

This is my Grandma and Pappy on their wedding day!! Aren't they a beautiful couple!! My Pappy was not the emotional kind of guy, but my Grandma was!! She looks like she is enjoying her day, doesn't she??

This is my Pappy, holding a German flag...there is an awesome story with this flag. Pappy sent this flag home to Grandma, and she just put it up in the attic. Well, in the 60's someone in the family was going to get a job with the government, and Grandma got really nervous and she gave the flag to her my Aunt Connie (who was an awesome seamstress), and she took it apart and made clothes with it. And she had told my Grandma that, that flag had the best silk she has ever used.! I thought this was a really cool story and I had to share it with ya!!

This is Grandma on her wedding day...Now isn't that the most beautiful wedding dress that you have ever seen?? And let me tell you, That dress is very heavy, but I don't know what material it is. And since she got married in February, I guess it did have to be heavy!!

The poem for today is dedicated to my Grandma and Pappy.


They say memories are golden,
Well, maybe that is true;
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried;
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still;
In my heart you hold a piece
No one could ever fill.

But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more,
To remember the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today;
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane;
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
