on saturday we said goodbye to baboo (travis' grandmother).
she was a very special lady.
not only was she a mother,
but a grandmother, great grandmother, and a great great grandmother.
she loved her family fiercely.
and she could tell a great story.
although there have probably been more told about her.
i promise they would make you laugh real hard.

the entire family gathered at the beach for memory sharing and prayer.
we tossed rose petals into the ocean and watched them come back in waves.
only to be taken out again.
later that afternoon, we walked down to see if any petals were still on the beach.
there were so many, you couldn't help but smile.

rain came in the early evening.
it was marked with a full double rainbow.
(hard to see, but the second one comes out of the palm tree.)

we miss you baboo.
but we are comforted knowing that you are in a better place.
sharing laughs with your family and friends.
checking out god's pantry.
(she loved a fully stocked one!)
and whipping up some good cooking.
these pictures are from our last visit with baboo.
i am so glad that we had a chance to give hugs, kisses, and say i love you's.
