We made the drive to Augusta on Friday afternoon and had what really was a great weekend with family, all things considered. The cousins all got to hang out…
Uno was played, of course!
We got a decent family photo…
and we got to recreate some classics!
The kids left their mark in Augusta by carving their initials into a tree in Susu’s yard. Love it.
The service for Susu was lovely. We just did a graveside service and the sun was shining with a nice breeze. There was quite a crowd and it was so nice to hear from people how beloved Susu was.
There is lots of cleaning out to do in her house and while it is a lot of work, it was fun to open drawers and unearth some treasures. One treasure we found was her wedding dress – the dress that she made herself in 1946! Wow! Also, Susu was tiiiiiny! I could get it on – barely – but it wasn’t zipping up!
GJ is carrying the weight of cleaning out the house and working so hard to get it all done. I don’t know how she does it all but I sure am proud of her and wish I could help some more.
Overall it was a nice weekend celebrating the one and only Susu! I think she’d be proud that we even managed to get this crew to pose for a big ole family photo!
We love you Susu!
