Addie Louise Hill

My Granny (dad's mom) went home to be with the Lord on February 12, 2009. She was 79. This is the same grandma I just went to visit the end of December. She is no longer in pain, and I extremely grateful for that. She is a Chrisitan, so I know I will see her again, but I miss her like crazy already! There was a funeral and viewing in Hot Springs, AR where she moved almost 5 years ago, and then another in Austin where she was buried. 2 viewings, 2 funerals, and over 17 hours of driving in 4 days is not a very fun combo.

This is the card Brandt drew for Granny that was buried with her. It is 2 clouds, 2 angels, and her spirit going up to Heaven. In the middle is Granny hugging God.

We have amazing friends who stepped up and watched the older 3 while we took the baby and drove to Arkansas. My poor dad was having some bad back pain and ended up at the chiropractor a few hours before the funeral. Then he got deathly sick right before we drove home and threw up all night. As if everything he was going through wasn't enough. Thankfully, he got home without incident, and had Sunday to hopefully rest and get to feeling better.
