Heath's Grandma FeFe (Eunice May Sheffield Reed) died on January 15,2009. We were able to go to Arizona for the funeral. I'm so lucky that I knew this sweet woman. Heath loves his grandma so much and it was always a joy to go over and see her. These pictures were taken right before we moved. She was having some rough times so we both had a feeling we probably wouldn't see her again. I'm getting teary just thinking of it, but when we left her bedside she just gave Heath the biggest hug and held him forever. She didn't want him to go. Heath gave the talk at the funeral and I thought I'd write some things down he said: She was a woman of faith, virtue, charity and dignity. He quoted the scripture in Cor. about charity and shared the story about the good Samaritan.

Here are some of her responses to some questions asked a while back.
What's your favorite color: "Mother always put us in blue, but I always wanted to wear pink." What's your favorite food: "If you put it in front of me, I'll eat it."

I feel grateful that we have people pass through our lives and leave imprints on our hearts. We love you Grandma!
