My Grandpa Ian's Funeral

Grandpa,

I will miss you so much.  Your stubbornness, your honesty, your love for my children.  You have created quite the legacy and we all hope to live to make you proud.  We know you loved us all so much, thanks for being a great Grandpa.  Love you.

One of my favorite things is to see my dad cry.  I love his trying to hold back tears face.  It is truly endearing

Thank you for posting these pictures about your grandpa's funeral. What a great man he was and is! I know how close you were to him and how you will miss him. I am glad he is buried near Avery.

I'm sorry to hear about your Grandpa's passing.

I found your blog two ways a little while back and haven't bothered to write and let you know until today. I found you through Cora Barrett who is friends with Emily Danes ? who is/was in your ward and who Bob knew in high school.

Then I found you through Ben & Summer Thatcher (who are in our ward). I still haven't asked her how she knows you.

I've been checking out your photography stuff too. How fun! I've got a little business myself that I'm trying to get going.

Here's my blog address if you want to see what we're up to.

Amazing pics! It's so wonderful that your family is such a wonderful support system. It's awesome to see everyone all grown up! It was the best seeing you in Utah! I LOVE YOU!

What a good man your grandfather must have been and such a wonderful posterity surrounding him at the funeral. I enjoyed catching up with your blog this morning. You and Cameron seem so far away and we miss seeing you once in a while.
