i bet they all had big smiles on their face!

hi dad. well i'm sitting her at the computer in tears. lately i've been teaching the plan of salvation. its such a blessing to read in alma 40 that grandma is in a happy state. its a huge blessing to know where our loved ones go. it was her time. i just wish i was able to say goodbye. i hope she can visit me in my dreams or something. i was thinking about her all week and i talked about her a lot here and i will continue to do so. i'll never forget her home made buns. and the way she took care of us. i'll never forget how she hugged us and how excited she was to see everyone when we walked in the door. i'll never forget how she made a blanket with me, how she forced me to make it because i didn't want to make it. i'm so grateful that now i have that blanket. i know that the first thing i'll do is pull it out when i get home and sleep with it. i love her very much dad. i couldn't imagine how you felt on your mission when grandpa died.. i am so happy that grandma left a great legacy. i'm grateful that she was so strong and a great example for every single one of us. i love that she had curly hair. i'm grateful i got to pluck her eyebrows for her and cut her hair before i left on my mission. i'm grateful that when i went to the temple i went to visit her. i felt aunt tekla's presence in the temple when i was there and i know that when i go back, i'll feel grandma blackmore's presence too. i wish i could hug you dad. and grandma penny. its hard being far away and knowing i won't be able to go to the funeral but i know that god will help me through everything and that now grandma will watch over me and lana. i'm glad that grandma is with her children and husband. i know that they were waiting for her. how marvelous it is to know that they were there waiting to greet her as she passed through the veil! i bet they all had big smiles on their face! man dad... its super sad and super happy at the same time. she wanted me to play a song on the piano for her at her funeral. i still have it.. its at home. i'll have to dig it out when i get home and play it for her later. 
    today we have changes. i hope i get to stay with my companion another change. i have learned to love her very much. but i'm doing really well right now. can't believe i'm halfway done the mission. its like a mountain. 9 months to get to the top and the way down is always twice as fast as the climb. i love you all. please tell everyone i love them.
