Goodbye to My Grandpa

My wonderful Grandpa Worley passed away Tuesday of last week. We spent last weekend in Utah for his funeral. He was a great person and one of the best huggers around! He will be missed by many people. I have thought about him a lot this last week and wish I could have said one last goodbye to him. He loved kids, he loved Skye, and I wish she could have gotten the opportunity to get to know him better. There will be plenty of memories and stories to share in the future, though.
He was buried with military honors for serving in World War II. The picture is crooked because I was holding a sleeping Skye while trying to take this!
There were beautiful flowers for the funeral.
Lance and my cousin, Kale, are in the front.
Skye slept the whole time we were at the cemetary--even through the gun salute the military gave him! It was a wonderful funeral (as funerals go), but I hope there aren't anymore anytime soon.

Thank you for this tribute to my dad and your grandpa. He really will be missed. I had so hoped he'd still here when you come in June. He was looking forward to seeing Skye again. He sure loved that adorable little Valentine's Day card she sent. He had it up for several months. He loved us all very much, didn't he? I hope we can all love the way he did.
