    That sounds like a wonderful way to remember your great aunt. I don’t think funerals have to be sad. It’s a good way for the family to spend time recalling great memories.

    I love indian food. I would go with you and eat it πŸ˜€

      It was a very nice funeral and the eulogy was sweet and funny and there were lots of stories between my grandma and her sister that were shared. It was really lovely.

      Yes! Let’s get Indian food. πŸ˜€

    Yay for adventurous grandmothers!! My grandmother was older than yours, but she also didn’t do what everyone else her age was doing. She left her small town and went to Columbia to college with her best friend, then came home and finished her degree. She worked and was the first woman in her town to have her own car in the early 1930’s!

    Sorry for your family’s loss. How lucky you are to have family members who live long active lives!!

      Wow! Your grandma is impressive. I love hearing about women who went outside of the norm in that day and age and did something amazing. GOod for her!

    So sorry to hear about your Aunt, but it sounds like she had a great life! My grandma kept a diary, which my Mom gave me after she passed away and it had entries like “cold today – made roasted chicken for dinner and had the girls over for bridge.”

    Not one entry said “today sucked!” or anything emotional like that. That’s one of the reasons I love blogging and continue to do so in this next stage of my life after my husband died. I think it will be amazing to have my future grandchildren read my life in my 40’s at some point!

      I bet her diaries are wonderful to read. I love seeing how things were/how people thought back then.

    the older I get the more I struggle with the long and full life thing as well.
    it is still so so so sad for me to say good bye.

      I’m with you. It’s still hard to say goodbye, even if they lived a long full life. I think about that sometimes when I realize my grandma is getting older…yes, she’s lived a long life so far but it will be hard to say goodbye when the time comes. πŸ™
