This is the last picture taken with me and Grandma (sorry, Grandma....I meant Grandma and me--she was always correcting my grammar). It was taken right before I left for Iraq.

Grandma Mae passed away last week after a long, well-lived life. She held on long enough to experience the miracles of Steve getting married and becoming a great-grandma (Norah "happened" to be born 5 weeks early, just in time for Grandma to see pictures and a video of her great-granddaughter). Her body had been failing the last year or two, but her mind was as sharp as ever. I could not have asked for a better Grandma. We had some really good times, whether it was at the cabin, at her house for Christmas, or having a coke with her after mowing her yard. She will be missed greatly by our family but we know she is in a much better place. We love you, Grandma.
