10 years later

July 29th was the 10th anniversary of Jeremy's moms death- unfortunately I was two years too late in meeting her - but  Jeremy is constantly saying how much of his mom is in the boys.. and from what I hear from her friends and family she sounded amazing! Jill was a wonderful mother and wife and grandma... she was a talented artist and gardener and was so crafty she would put Martha Stewart to shame! she loved music and fashion(I know we would have been close:) 
It makes me sad to know how much she has missed.. but I find comfort in knowing she is watching us and smiling- I know she sent us our three boys- I joke that it is pay back for Jeremy being such a pill when he was little... but I think she knew how much we would love them- 
Last night we had a family get together to celebrate her life- we had dinner outside and sat around our new fire pit and shared stories of this amazing woman- before we knew it, it was almost 11pm- I know she was there with us and got to see what a beautiful family she created.... love you Jill!
