Great Grandma Rose passed away last week. I will never forget going to meet her in her beautiful downtown Salt Lake apartment. I wasn't even part of the family yet. She gave me a big hug. And then she kissed me on the lips. That was unexpected. I quickly learned how to hug and turn my face to get a cheek-kiss instead. :)
I'm grateful for her love, her confidence in us, her quiet testimony of the gospel, her generosity, her endurance through the last few years of health challenges.
The annual Christmas party will never be the same without her seated as the guest of honor. We'll miss you, Grandma!
