Passing of a Generation

My grandmother had eight children. She was born in 1900. Her husband died when she was 37. Her youngest 2.... her oldest 18.

She now lives in heaven.....

My Dad was the fifth born......

Two of those children are still living.

This week we say goodbye (for now) to the youngest .... my Uncle. Twenty one months ago I said goodbye to my Dad.... and two years ago we said goodbye to the oldest... another Uncle of mine.

Sad to see the generation passing......

Will I pass on the legacy of these that went before us..... to my children, my grandchildren.... my great grandchildren?

What will they remember about their Papa, Uncles, Aunts, Great Grandmother?

I miss them so much.

  1. You are doing a wonderful job of passing on the legacy, keeping their memories alive through word and picture...leading your children to Jesus...building a new legacy. Be encouraged, my friend.
    Praying for you. Enjoy your time with extended family...make memories...strengthen old ties, build new ones.
