So fun to see that. And I have to tell you that my Grandparents lived across the street from the temple too…in a condo. In fact, my grandpa still lives there, alone. When we visited and I could never remember the address, I just followed the roads that led to the temple and found their home as well. Thank you for sharing your memories…

Even when a death is expected, it’s hard to wrap our heads (and hearts!) around it. May your many memories help you smile through the tears.

I miss my grandmothers often. I had 3 also. I thought that picture must be you. It looks to much like your youngest, June to me.

I grew up with three grandparents too (my mother’s father died when I was 3). My father’s parents died within months of each other when they were 99 (grandfather) and 90 (grandmother). My mother’s mother lived to be 100. Due to circumstances outside my control, I wasn’t able to attend any of their funerals or memorial services. I still feel so sad about this many years later.

I wish you and your family peace.

I haven’t talked with your mom and only learned about Lucille’s passing on your blog. As you did for Daisy and Rudi, you did a wonderful job of sharing some of the really special things I remember about Lucille. I wish we could give hugs to all of you.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I met your Grandma a handful of times- and Mary Lou. She was a sweetheart. Big hug to you and your mother- love your mother as well. She was a major influence for good on me as a youth leader.

I loved reading the recollections of your grandma- what an amazing woman. And I loved seeing the picture of you with your mom. Your littles look so much like you as a child! Wishing you comfort during this difficult time.

I have been grandma-less since I was 13. I still think about them every day and tear up when I tell stories about them to my children. She would have loved my kids and my husband. You are very lucky to have had 3 grandmas as long as you did (I’m sure you already know that!). So sorry for your loss.

The best way to honor the person she was to you, is to pass along the love she gave you and lessons she taught. May happy memories of your grandmother bring warmth and light while you travel through your steps of grieving. So sorry for your family’s loss.
