To Carry On.. Remembering the Love…

Today was my Grandpa Hubbard’s last day here with us.  I know he is resting in peace and is so lucky to be in Heaven now with my beautiful Grandmother.

I listen to this song and think of him and all of those who we have lost in our lifetime and know he is in my heart and now watching over the family and friends he has left behind. 

‘Awake’ by Josh Groban

It began with Donald’s Love for Margaret.  margaret and donald at the beach marg and don

Although their marriage was cut short when my Grandmother passed away in 1975 (3 years before I was born) they were in love and created a beautiful family who are so thankful and blessed knowing they are back together again.
