Tender moment

I went to the cemetary this week for the first time since the funeral. I didn't realize that the temporary grave marker has a picture of my Mom on it. When I set Kate down on the ground she immediately loved Grandma. She hugged it, stroked her face, smiled, kissed it. I cried and cried. My sweet little baby. My sweet Mom. I hope Kate never forgets the love she feels for her Grandma.

That breaks my heart. I miss her so much. It actually seems to be getting harder and harder. For awhile there it didn't seem real, now I am so aware of this reality and of her absence in my life. I'm glad you had your camera with you to capture such a sweet moment.

Oh Jen, what an angel you have there and the veil is so thin with Kate still.
There are days I just break down crying, I can't imagine what it must be like for you and Heather and your brothers.
I love you all so much!

Oh man- what a sweet heart that little Kate is. Aren't you glad we have the gospel knowledge? I know your mom was so close and she shared that moment with you too.

Oh I have tingles. What a sweet sweet thing to experience and capture.

I've been thinking about you lots, Jenny. I will call you in the next day or two - I have been so remiss, but thinking about you constantly.

Love and big hugs to you,
xoxo
