Catching Up- Knoxville

We are saddened to say that our family has suffered the loss of Hunter's maternal Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Slater.

Grandmommie, as she was known, passed away on September 27th and services were held in Knoxville, TN on October 17 & 18. Thankfully the services were held at a later date to accommodate the Priest's schedule. This also allowed my tailbone some time to heal before embarking on the 6 hour road trip. We traveled to Knoxville and celebrated the life of Great-Grandma Mary. Even at 92, she maintained her vibrant personality and unconditional love for her family. She will be greatly missed.

During our time in Knoxville, we were able to visit with Grandma Jane and Grandpa Don, as well as Aunt Lizzie & Uncle Chris. With Hunter's family scattered around, it was wonderful to have the whole family together. We are so grateful we were all able to attend.

While staying at the hotel in Knoxville, Hunter and Marilyn enjoyed some time in the pool. (I was resting on a heating pad in bed...) Here are a few pictures Aunt Lizzie took of Marilyn in the pool. They are absolutely precious!

Here are a few of her back in the room... she loves the water so much she did not want to leave her floaty boat. Perhaps she will be a great swimmer like her Daddy, Aunt Lizzie & Uncle Chris.

All wiped out, with her blankie and her baby.
