Eden stayed back home with Eric and my dad. It was actually a sweet time for the three of us to spend together. We drove up to Goldthwaite, TX for the burial and spent some time at a park with family before heading back. What a gorgeous day it was - breezy and sunny and not too hot. The three of us has such a memorable day together as we celebrated and remembered Maw Maw.

Monday, May 14th Maw Maw, Vera Springer, passed away after such a short struggle with her pancreatic cancer. It was 2 1/2 weeks since her diagnosis and 2 weeks to the day that she was given 2-8 weeks. It's hard to believe and although it's so hard to say goodbye, we see so much blessing during those 2 1/2 weeks and God's hand in so many of the details. She was in her home which meant a lot to her, she was surrounded by family, so many traveled to see her for the last time, she didn't have to struggle for months and be in pain any longer and best of all the blessing of reaching her eternal home with her Heavenly Father! I just love this picture of her holding Claire for the first time on Mother's Day 2006.
