Today, we will remember, honor and bury my precious grandfather.
You guys, this is a special day.
He was SO excited about this day.
After my Mimi passed, all he wanted to do was “go home” which he did on January 8th. He wanted to be with her and with Jesus. I’m not sure I had a visit with him though during those 15 months where he didn’t also mention to me how blessed and honored he was to be buried in the Veteran’s cemetery with her in his full uniform and medals. I honestly think he held on just long enough to see his uniform and his medals before going home.
So, I’m not here, I’m there today. I will take photos and share them because it’s what he wanted. The US Marines told him at the end that he would be honored and recognized for his service to our country and boy, he was pumped about that 😉 . It’s not a farewell today, it’s a “see you soon” as we celebrate the amazing life and legacy of Thomas Roy Lowe.
A wife of 75 years.
Two daughters. One son.
And five great-great grandchildren too.
A life to be celebrated and honored today. xx
