Grateful for Grandpa

I am so grateful now for the amazing family that I am a part of. My grandparents raised a family of hilarious, warm, caring, faithful people. I truly love being with my family. Grandpa Rasmussen's funeral was a celebration of what a wonderful man he was and what a wonderful family he created. Before the viewing last week we met at Chuck-a-rama (Grandpa's favorite restaurant) in Gramp's honor. Any time family came to town that was the place he took them, so it was only fitting.

All the cousins except our missionary Shad were there 

After the funeral on Friday we got together at Grandma's house to play. laugh and enjoy each other. We ate pizza, licorice, and pop because that's what Gramps would have fed us.

The whole weekend ended up just how Grandpa would have wanted it.

You've been gone for a bit, now I know why. Sorry to hear about your loss. Even though it's sometimes expected, it's always hard to lose a grandparent.

I'm sorry for your loss!!! Sounds like he will be very missed.

I remember when you kind of hated the whole Chuck-a-rama thing. Funny how we start to see the meaning in things our younger selves didn't recognize. Beautiful family. Honor to know them.

Looking at the pics, I am reminded of how funerals for Latter-Day Saints kind of turn into family reunions :) Hugs!
