Brooke's Great Grandma Irma passed away this weekend. She was lucky to have lived 89 healthy years and maintain her health up until the very end. We feel very blessed that she got to know Brooke and that Brooke got to know her. She was a very special great-grandma, grandma and mother.

Everyone who knew Grandma knew how young at heart she was. She was active and healthy until the last 4-6 months of her life, which is exactly how she wanted it. She touched everyone's life who she met. She was a wonderful woman. We love you, Grandma.
Death makes you realize the innocence of a baby. All day yesterday as we were struggling to deal with everything that was going on, Brooke was just happy and smiling and laughing away. It must be nice to only have to worry about your next meal or where your favorite toy is. I wish life could stay this easy and simple for her forever. All I had to do was look at her and feel better. She could always bring a smile to Grandma's face and I know she will continue to bring smiles to everyone.

So sorry to hear about your grandmother. I am sure having Brooke around brought joy to all at such a hard time. Babies do that!

Brooke is beautiful and getting so big.

Love Hillary
