Sweet, Sweet Nanny

Hello everybody! Today was a very sad day for us. We attended Derek's grandmother, Nanny's, funeral today. She passed away Thursday morning. She has been sick for a few years now on and off. But, Derek and I weren't aware that her condition was so serious now. She had a really bad year two years ago, but this last year has been amazing. She has felt great, traveled a lot, and been so happy. She has been so so dear to our heart. She was there the day Parker was born, his dedication, the day he opened all his gifts for Christmas in GA, and at our wedding. and I am so happy for that. I am so happy that she got to meet her first great grandchild. This woman is amazing and has lived her life for Jesus by serving others. Although, we are so very sad and will miss her dearly, we are happy to know that she is in perfect health and happiness now. She wouldn't trade coming back here for anything! Below is a picture of her holding Parker when he was born. Oh, I get so sad seeing this picture because I already miss her. We are currently in GA, but we will be back in Austin on Monday. Please pray for her wonderful husband. Pray that he will get through this with peace that surpasses all understanding. Pray that he never feels lonely and seeks God during this time of adjusting. He loved her so much and says he doesn't know how he is going to do life without her. They were married 52 years. Praise God for people like Nanny and Papa! They have taught us so much!

Here we are at Parker's dedication. Nanny is on the left of me looking at the picture. We miss her!!
