I think that the best way to describe our December this year is: family time. We laid to rest two dear beloved Grandparents within one week. Their funerals brought many, many loved ones together. We all had the privilege of being at Grandma Adkins graveside service, and although cold and rainy (for us Californians anyway) it was a peaceful, memorable service. Nathan was able to fly back for his Grandpa Buchanan's funeral in Illinois and was surrounded by loved ones he hadn't seen in years. Grandpa's graveside service was a wee bit different with freezing temperatures, snow and heavy wind. Another memorable experience for more than one reason. We miss both of them but know they now rest in the Lord. Following are some pictures of our loved ones that came together from near and far.
