Wordless Wednesday

This is Brad's Grandma holding Mallorie in the hospital right after she was born.

I cherish these memories.  On December 31 we found out that his Grandma has inoperable brain tumors.  over the past few months she has really gone down hill.  She started by repeating herself a lot or forgetting why she got up and went to the kitchen.  Just little things like that.  Then she moved into the Hospice House in Holland.  (They are AMAZING!)   As the tumors grew she began to lose her eyesight on her right side.  But she was is great spirits and seemed to know what was going on.  Then she took a turn for the worse.  they are keeping her sedated and can slip into a coma at any time.  I know that this what is best for her because she is in a lot of pain but it is really hard to see her that way.  She is such an amazing woman and a real role model and someone to look up to.  I have only know her for almost 10 years but I feel like I have known her forever.  She is so sweet and always thinking of others.  She is someone that I thrive to be like.  She will truly be missed but you can believe that we will tell Mallorie (and future kids) about her.  She is truly loved and I can not wait for her to meet Grandpa up in Heaven.  I wish I could see that reunion!
