A Tearful Goodbye

Hello and Happy Monday.  I hope you enjoyed that extra day off for those that had the day off.  I have taken the last few days off of blogging and have enjoyed spending time with my family and with Kenyon. 

Grandma D was laid to rest on Friday.  It was a very nice service with and included a Catholic mass.  She was buried at the Melba cemetery, which is where both Grandma A and Grandpa Amos are buried.  She was placed in the plot next to their long-time Owyhee County neighbor and friend Dick Jayo, who passed away a few months ago.  It is always sad to say goodbye to our loved ones.

There was a very fitting poem that was placed in the program.  I wanted to share it here with you:

God saw she was getting tired,

and a cure was not to be,

so He put His arms around her

and whispered, “Come With Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched her suffer,

and watched her fade away.

Although we loved her dearly,

we couldn’t make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

hard working hands put to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best!


Grandma and Grandpa had 65 years together.  I posted the photo taken at their 60th wedding anniversary on Facebook in honor of Valentine’s Day yesterday.
