In Memory of Grum

I find music to be very therapeutic. When my dad passed away there were a few songs that got me through that time. When my dad passed Brad Paisley's When I Get Where I'm Going helped me tremendously and I first heard it within days of his passing. Today, a little under two weeks of my Grandma passing I have found Sissy's Song by Alan Jackson. I truly believe these songs were provided to me to help me heal, God uses many different avenues to provide comfort. For me that comfort is found in certain songs. They make me sad, happy, reflective and a whole other slew of emotions. Today they inspired me to put together some pictures and video of my Grum, so please enjoy and turn on your volume for this one.

Popping over from SITS. Very sweet and touching! I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother, mine passed 3 years ago, and some days are still hard.

Dude, I know I'm all full of emotions these days but that totally made me cry and I didn't even know your grandma.

It was beautiful.

Sweatheart...that was beautiful! What a wonderful way to remember Grum. I love you and wish I could hold you when you need to cry. Grandma would be wondering what all this fuss was about. She is now with JESUS and Grandpa.

Found you on SITS. That is such a lovely tribute! I keep finding things that make me cry lately! Your Grum reminds me of my husband's Grandma. Some of your photos are similar to ones we have. Bless you! Have a great Sunday! :0)

That is beautiful. I know how difficult it can be to lose a loved one. I lost my grandfather last month. Thank you for sharing this.
