Nana and I through the years

I really wanted to be able to put pictures with my last post but I was in Melbourne and didn’t have them easily accessible to me 🙂 Now that my computer is fixed (had a mega virus…$80 and a week later it’s cured!) I thought I’d post pictures of Nana and I together through the years. I used a lot of these on the video we played at her funeral and I love that they show us during such happy times (mostly on holidays or at Longdoggers our fav!). I will miss her very, very much.

My last time seeing her…family picnic in July. Our last picture together.
I thought I’d end my little Nana tribute with the poem I read at the funeral. I actually moved the last two lines to the beginning as I felt it made the tone happier. This poem was in her Bible and it was something she wanted read at her funeral so I’m glad I was able to do that for her:

Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.

Barbara “Nana” Bublitz
April 7, 1930 ~ August 15, 2009
I love and miss you Nana!
