Trip To Arizona

A week and a half ago, my mom got a phone call that her dad had had a heart attack and she flew out to Arizona to be with him and other family. Unfortunately, I got a phone call last Sunday that my grandfather had passed away. Along with Mr. Howard, Colin, Katie, Mom & Dad, and Uncle Larry, we all flew out to Arizona to be there to say our goodbyes at his ceremony on Thursday. Because my grandpa was in the military, he was able to have a beautiful military funeral, complete with the playing of "Taps" on the clarinet and the presenting of the flag. It was a great opportunity for all of us to come together and honor and remember him. Selfishly, we're so happy that he knew he was going to be a great-grandfather in July!
