grandma riedel

This is my grandmother - Grandma Riedel.  She peacefully passed away in her sleep this past weekend.  I am heading to Kansas to give her eulogy, an honor bestowed upon me by my family.  I only hope I can articulate what a wonderful person she was.

As I reflect, I realize my grandmother was a mentor to me long before I even knew it.  I can remember visiting her during summer vacations and pouring over every cake decorating magazine she owned.  She was also known to throw a party or two in her day - amazing parties! She planted seeds in me that now flourish.

I have been truly blessed.  Up until this weekend, I still had all four of my grandparents living. I grew up with strong, wise elders that loved me and taught me wonderful things about life. They got to meet my children and that makes me so happy.
I love you, Grandma!

Will be thinking of you. I'm sure your eulogy will do justice to how special your grandmother was to you and all of your family.
