Each life that Touches Ours....

I am finally getting around to posting about the passing of both Grandma and Grandpa Martineau.

Back in October we got the word that Grandma Martineau wasn't doing too well. So we made a quick decision to make a trip to Utah over fall break. Since the kids didn't have school that Friday or Monday we made it a family trip. (which I have posted about earlier). A week exactly after we got back we got the call that Grandma Kay Martineau had passed. (On October 25th, 2011) We weren't sure we were gonna be able to make the funeral but pulled it off. Brandon had the privilege of being a Paul Bearer and I had the opportunity to sing. It was great to be with all of Brandon's family. This was the first time in a long time that my father-in-law's siblings were all together.

We knew that Grandpa Martineau wouldn't be around too long after Grandma passed...Grandpa passed away on December 30th, 2011...just 2 months after Grandma. Unfortunately we were not able to make it back up to Utah for his funeral.

Over the years Brandon and I always made sure that every time we went to Utah we would stop by to see them. I had only known them for 10 years but learned so much from them. We will miss them and look forward to the time when we can see them again!!
