6 Months

Yesterday was 6 months since our dear sweet Kelly went to be with the Lord. It was a tough day for all of us. We decided to get out of town, so we went to Great Falls for the day. We tried to do some things that Kelly might have enjoyed, one of which was going to PetCo to get her dog a new toy. She always enjoyed doing that. Over all, it was a good day.
When we got home, Patty and I went out to the cemetary to put some flowers on Kelly's grave. This was the hardest part of the day. Patty and I had a lot of tears.
I can't believe Kelly has been gone for 6 months. I miss her so much!! Some days are tougher than others, but each day I see her smiling face. What a blessing she was and still is today. We continue to meet people who were touched in some way by this amazing young lady.
Dear Lord, give a hug and kiss for her daddy.

Don,

That does sound like something Kelly would love to do. I will always remember the way she carefully chose treats for Fenway that night after dinner this year.

Kelly brought so much joy and hope to those of us that were lucky enough to know her and also to people who only knew her from afar.

Wish I could give you all a healing hug.

I love you all.

God Bless,

Ross

such a sweet man, sweet daddy. my heart breaks in my own sorrow and yet breaks again to see andknow your sorrow.
what a journey this is - how i miss her too.
I cling to this verse from Psalm 119 - seems to be such a comfort to me this month:
"My comfort in my suffering is this-your promise preserves my life."
Thank you Jesus for saving, preserving my life, so that I can someday truly rest in you, rid of this world of sorrow, sin and grief. But I thank you also for the joy of the people you have brought into my life, especially my husband and daughters, grandsons and son-in-law, mom and dad, and the whole Grubb crew and all my family. You are so good and I cling to your comfort. Thank you that you paid the price so Don and I and Kelly and the girls can be together for the rest of time.
