She's probably teaching Moses how to crochet

My grandma went home to be with Jesus early this morning. She's been in declining health for several years now, so this is not a surprise.

I wouldn't say that I was extremely close to grandma, but I have lots of great memories of going out to the farm in Illinois to visit her and grandpa. She is the one who taught me to crochet, and I suspect that I got at least part of my craft gene from her. She was always creating something, and loved to take ordinary items and repurpose them into something crafty.

I'll be heading to Illinois sometime this week to celebrate her life with the rest of my family.
