Show and Tell Monday

Show and Tell Monday

Today I thought I would share a picture of my parents house in Ohio. I have been so busy and have had no time for creating. My parents moved back to Ohio from St.Louis about 6 years ago. This is there dream. The land has been a part of my dads family for years. The street is even named after my great grandmothers last name 'BUNCE Road". As growing up, this is where we always came to visit. My grandmothers house is still on the land infront of my parents. It is sad to see that grandma does not live there anymore and it remains empty. The house is very old and is in need of great repairs. I think my parents are planning on having it torn down. The land is so peaceful and full of nature. There is a pond through the woods that my dad, brothers, and my grandfather dug by hand. I love to go fishing down there. I remember my grandma and her friend Perry showing how to prepare a fish for dinner. My kids love to go down there, the tradition has carried on.

I am so happy that my parents have built a beautiful home on such a wonderful land. I hope they enjoy it there as much as I love visiting.

Happy Monday!

I love you Grandma

I will be traveling to Gallipolis , Ohio tomorrow. My 94 year old grandmother passed away Saturday evening. I was hoping to see her this week and was planning on leaving Wednesday. I feel like I should have visited her before she left. I am happy she is not suffering anymore and know she has found peace and comfort in heaven. I will miss her very much. I think the hardest part is going to be tomorrow when I come up her road to my parents and pass the home where she once lived for years. I have had many fond memories there. I hope she knows how much I love her and how I will miss her. I will remember those memories forever. I love you Grandma!
