R.I.P. To my great-grandparents

Within the last three weeks I have lost both my great-grandmother and great-grandfather. I knew that my great-grandfather was ill and in the hospital for a few months but my great-grandmother died of pnemonia and I didn't get a chance to say goodbye. It was amazing to be able to enjoy spending time with them. I learned alot and appreciate the time that I have spent with them both. My great-grandmother was the niece of Henry Berry Lowrie. She didnt share to much but what she did--I cherish. My great-grandfather was fiesty LOL! and cursed up a storm. He was a very handsome man to be so old. Seeing pictures of him young...I see how he ended up having so many children. Anyways, I didnt think it would be so tough losing them but geez, I miss them both. I made trips down to Carolina three times a year just to spend time with them. Well I just wanted to get this out in hopes of it helping me cope.
It was hard finding a picture of my great-grandma (she didnt believe in taking pictures) but I know some family members managed to sneak a few and im working on getting them now. But here is my great-grandfather Buster Hunt. R.I.P.

God bless your great-grands! I never met mine. What a treasure that must've been for you! I am sorry for your loss but hope you enjoy and cherish the wonderful memories of them. Can you imagine the changes they saw during their lifetime? Man...

The Creator sure had a strange sense of humor!

I'm very sorry for your loss. You were fortunate to have them and for such a good portion of your life! The only great grandparent I got to know was my paternal grandmother's dad and he was a fun one! But I was still small when he died.... just grateful to have the memories. Your ggrandpa was a handsome man!!
