We Love You Grandpa Seals!

JM, his brother Christopher, and I got to fly to Stockton a few weeks ago to visit JM's Grandpa Seals. Grandpa Seals' age is starting to affect him and we wanted to spend a weekend with him because we love him so much.

Uncle Greg and Aunt Daylin and were super hospitable and were our consierge, our taxi drivers, our chefs, and our entertainers during the whole weekend! Thanks guys, we loved spending time with you! And thanks for taking us out to eat so much! We were so spoiled!! Allie, it was fun hanging out with you too!! We also got to see Uncle Pat, Aunt Pam, and our other Seals cousins! Guys, you're the best!

All this lost luggage decor at the Sacramento Airport was cool!

The Three Musketeers! We had fun traveling together!

Grandpa Seals at his nursing home. We love you Pops!

JM teaching Uncle Greg how to Geocache! Of course he would!

A drive through China Town! Neat!

We got to visit Grandma Bess. Thinking of her brings tears to my eyes every time. She has blessed our lives so much and has brought such joy to our family. I loved her kind and gentle heart, she was always ready to serve everyone at the drop of a hat! I want to always strive to be like her! Thanks for giving your boys a touch of sensitivity, we are so blessed! We miss you!

This is a neat picture on Grandma Bess' headstone. It's cool how they could do that!

My cutie husband and me at the graveyard. It was so peaceful there, and very beautiful. A bit chilly though!

Ok, bad idea to take a picture of a picture...but I couldn't resist. This is a picture of Grandpa and Grandma Bess all in love when they were super young. It is taken of them on their way up Ophir Canyon where Grandma Bess lived (in Utah). When you look at it closely, you can see their deep love for eachother, like no one else in the world mattered when they were in each other's arms! Wow, now that's true love! Because of grandpa's memory loss, he forgets often that Grandma Bess is gone. When he asks about her, and he's reminded that she's in Heaven, it seems like his heart is broken every time when he realizes that the love of his life is gone. They had such a loving bond. They are such an inspriation to us! And we love them both so much!

Thank you Grandpa for the special, and emotional visit! We love you so very much and know the Lord will send you comfort and peace!
