I was in Utah for three days attending the funeral of my Grandmother. It was a wonderful experience to be with my extended family for a couple of days and honor the life of my Grandmother. I am blessed with a strong family and a rich heritage from both my Mother and my Father. I draw strength from them and the knowledge that I am more than just me, but rather part of a line that extends back through the years, and now pushes forward with my own children. I am a better person because of the life and example of all of my Grandparents, both sides.
