My sweet Mother passed away on Aug. 14th with most of her family at her side. I know it is better that she is no longer in pain, but I will miss her. She was one of my best friends and a truly amazing person. I have never met anyone so talented, and so willing to share her talents with others.  

This is the beautiful quilt that my Mom made for my  sweet baby girl. The last one of hundreds that she made. Even though she was sick she was determined to make it so that Kynlee would have a homemade quilt from Grandma. I will cherish it forever. 

I am so grateful that I have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life, and that I know that I will be with my sweet Mother again. I keep thinking of the quote, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." I will cry many more times, but I can also smile when I think of the sweet memories with my Mom. And while it is hard to have her gone, the beautiful example of her life gives me something to work towards. I will miss you Mom!!!
