the one where we say goodbye to Idalee

We buried Idalee over the weekend.

She is Devin's grandmother and the matriarch of our family. She was 99 and will be greatly missed. We all gathered together and celebrated with food, drink and talks of good memories. And lots of laughter. Jill and Cory live close to Kalyn, so they brought her with them. I'm so thankful. I was never so happy to see her! I met her at the driveway. I love it when my family is all together. The more the merrier!

Of course I took photos. I always want to photograph. I was compelled to photograph the rosary and the funeral as well, but of course I didn't. I'm not sure why we don't photograph those life events as well. I'm guessing we just feel it wouldn't be proper or right.

I did bring out the camera when we were all together. That's what I will post here to share with everyone. Our BIG CATHOLIC FAMILY all gathered together enjoying one another. All because of Idalee.
