Isn't she lovely?
Grandma Randall recently passed away.
It seemed too soon.
But this is definitely a time that I am holding on tight
to my testimony.
Its priceless at times like these.
It's amazing to have that level of comfort during a difficult time.
I just stood back and watched Casey's family handle this
with so much grace.
Everyone of them; sad, but fully understanding where she was
and testifying in every action and word of the peace this gives.
When I first met Grandma Randall
I couldnt help but feel a little intimidated by her strength.
But soon I felt the love that she was showing through that strength.
She was a rock.
She gave off this reassuring feeling of safety and peace.
Like as long as you were tucked under her wing you'd be fine.
She is such a great example to me.
And I know that through knowing her, Ill be a better mother and wife.
And I thank her for that gift.
When in Idaho, we asked Grandpa Randall how they met...
he said he was in high school
and she nailed him with a snowball.
and instead of hitting her back,
he chased her down and gave her a kiss.
What a perfect beginning.
I so love this.
