Celebration of Life ♥

Ten days after I wrote this post, my beautiful Grandma passed away...

She was born Emily Joan Jacobs...She married my Grandpa Leo in 1955 in Nashville, TN & became Joan (pronounced Jo-Ann) Jumps...He passed away in August of 2004...These are just a few favorite photos of them...

Grandma with my little Paven, 2008


It was a beautiful, cool fall day...We had lunch & then graveside services as a family...My Sister sang & Grandma's beloved Pastor Larry sang & played the guitar, then we all sang...It was beautiful...Afterwards, instead of a visitation at the funeral home, we had a Celebration of Life at Bell Ridge Church with music, pie & cookies, coffee & hot apple cider...So many wonderful friends baked the most beautiful pies...It was cozy...It was perfect...Grandma would've loved it...Especially the music, she loved music & was a very talented pianist...I miss her ♥

A few pictures from the day...
