Thank you for all the well wishes as the boys and I embarked on a road trip to Philadelphia to attend my grandmother's funeral. The travel went off with out a hitch (we made it in 5 1/2 hours!) and the boys were phenomenal. Movies in the car certainly helped, but J in particular, was extremely helpful. John was able to fly down and join us Wednesday night, and it was great that he could make it. (and drive home!!)
How amazing that my boys got to know their great grandmother for as long as they did. She lived in the same town as my parents for the last 3 1/2 years, so J and C were able to see her on a regular basis. J (who is 8 1/2) was much sadder than I anticipated during the service. He is REALLY going to miss his Nonna!
As my mom mentioned at one point over the passed couple of days (hard to believe we were only gone for 36 hours!) My grandmother lived until she died. I can only hope that someone can say that about me someday!
