16 years

I went back to Pennsylvania this month for my Grandmother's Memorial.
Grammy was a VERY special person. We grew up five houses down the road from her and almost all of my childhood memories include both her and my PopPop. I would give anything in the world to have a set of Grandparents living close to me so that my kids could have that kind of relationship. Grammy was able to meet Tyler twice and Emma just once. I did talk to her on the phone and sent pictures so she was able to at least "see" and hear about them. I love this picture from the last time I was in Pennsylvania. The smile on her face here is the one that I always see when I think of her.

It was brought to our attention that this trip was not only special because it gave us all a chance to honor the wonderful person that Grammy was but it was also the first time in 16 years that the four of us Strohl kids were with my dad at the same time.
16 years!!!!! I sure hope it isn't another 16 years till we do it again!
