my family had a sad thanksgiving this year, as my grandma passed away on saturday. it was fairly unexpected, but we are taking comfort in the fact that she was sick for only a brief time and passed away at home, having seen many of her family and loved ones in her last few days. i’m so grateful that i made it home in time to see her on saturday afternoon, just a few hours before she was gone. she was adamantly opposed to going into a nursing home, so i am sure it all went as she would have wanted – had she made it through the weekend, she would have been going to the nursing home on monday.
for her memorial service, i made a collage of photos using a tri-fold foam board and some mod-podge. i used about half the photos i picked out, and the other half will be put on a bulletin board with a note that people may take a photo if they would like. after the service, i am giving the collage to my mom.
a sad project, but i’m happy with the way it turned out. lots of tears mixed in with the mod-podge.
