This is one of the greatest women I've ever known. She was a good example in a million ways and was my greatest role model of what kind of wife I want to be.
They make the cutest couple and inspired dreams of eternal romance in my little girl heart.
She was not only an incredible woman, but an incredible Grandma. First to me, and then to my kids who still ask, "Mom, when can we see Grandma Bear again?" I'm so thankful that at least Ksenya and Kabe have memories with her and love her.I was also privileged to spend a lot of time with her in her last year and will forever be grateful for her insight and wisdom and endless support, testimony, and belief in me.I love you Grandma and miss you every day.
Happy Birthday!

I cried when I read this because I had missed her all day and wished I could still talk to her and get those great hugs and kisses. Nobody makes a person feel more loved. I sure hope she had a great day. Debbie

I thought about her all day. Thank you for this post. I didn't those two older pictures of Grandma, and I am grateful for your resourcefulness so I can steal it.

By the way, I laughed right loud when I saw your blog heading: "Beware. . .I am an unsocialized homeschooler." Although, if anyone can homeschool kids without them turning out strange, you can. Thank goodness they have you for their mom!
