she loved and was loved

A good wife, mother, daughter, sister, "Gran" and friend. Her cancer cured. Her pain is gone. She can again be with the man that she continuously called for, her Hawthorne (She always called the love of her life by their last name). This women who loved and was loved, Jimmy's Gran, went to be with the Lord yesterday.

Always holding pictures close to my heart, during times like these they are held even closer. Encouraging you to continually take pictures/have pictures taken of your family.

November 2008: The last time Ada got to be with Gran. Great Gran had many collectibles and wanted to share one with Ada...

We were so sorry to learn of Jimmy's Gran's passing. She is, indeed, in a better place. I know that she will be missed beyond belief by your family.
So glad you were able to capture such beautiful photos and precious moments. You are right, pictures like this might as well be gold.
As we've said many times this weekend, know our love, thoughts and of course many prayers are with you.

Jimmy, Brittany, and Miss Ada,
your family will be in our prayers. The pictures you have captured are priceless and should remind each of us to never take for granted our grandparents.
With much love,

What a precious picture of Ada and her gran. My girls call my mom gran, so that name holds a special place in my heart. Praying for you and your family.
