Heaven Gained an Angel.

Cameron's grandmother went peacefully to Heaven on Saturday afternoon. I was so lucky to have known her for just 5 short years, and considered her to another grandmother to me. She will be remembered as optimistic, always having a smile on her face, and a fighter. She never once complained of her situation or being in pain. 

Here are some photos to remember the good times.

Her 90th birthday party (where her grandchildren had to run out in the middle of the party to go buy more beer! For a 90th birthday party!!)
Shown below with her two children. 

I love her smile in this picture. 


Cameron and Rara (as he called her) on a cruise in 2011.


Rara and Bill, her husband of 10 years.
They got married when Cameron was in college. It was a home (football) game that day and none of his friends believed that he was really going home for his 80-something year old grandmother's wedding. 
She was previously married to Cameron's grandfather for over 50 years, before he passed. 

Our wedding day. 
She did so well that day walking down the aisle!

Mother's Day 2013.
It is Rara and my Grandma Anna's (second from left) matching china that fills our china cabinet. 

Celebrating her 93rd birthday!

You are so loved and missed, Rara.
