This was the day my parents drove down to Portland to let us know the news.
The cancer was back and there was nothing to be done about it.
From this moment on it became a waiting game.
2.5 years later and now she is gone.
I still can't believe it. The time absolutely flew
However sad the circumstances were when I took these, I absolutely love this set.
My mom, looking so beautiful and peaceful- as always. In one frame organizing her wallet, in another, her spider pin she loved to wear during halloween season. My dad looking pensive, there is a lot there on his mind no doubt.

This was taken earlier this month. I found them cuddling together on her bed. Is there anywhere safer in the world than in the arms of your grandmother?
Hard to believe she is gone.
Oh, how she loved her precious Sonja!

I am going to take the next week and repost photos in honor of her.
Halloween was one of her favorite holidays so I am starting off my week of Valerie with this fun post.
