Grandma's funeral was great. I cant believe how many people I am related too. Wow! The funeral potatoes were good too. But I think the thing that got to me the most was that they had a paint brush in her hands inside the casket. She has been painting ever since anyone can remember. And has great talent as a painter. Just seeing her there with a paint brush really got to me. The quote crossed my mind, "Live by the sword, die by the sword." Grandma lived by her heart and by her paint brush, and everyone at the services definitely felt her love heart and passion. I'm glad to have her influence and inspiration in my life.

Going to Arizona

Hey everyone, Dan here.

I just have to post that my Great Grandmother Ray passed away a couple days ago and I will be going to Phoenix to attend her services and to sing some songs to pay my utmost respect for a woman I have always treasured.

She was always willing to take a random call from me, even in the evenings. I could call her and say, "Grandma would you like to hear a new song I just wrote?" And in her squeaky voice she would reply, "You know I do."

I love her very much. I am sad, very sad, that she is gone. But happy that I have had the honor of having such a magnificent woman in my life and in my family. Her funeral will be Friday April 30, 2010.

I just know she is already an Angel. She always was and she now has her wings. I just want her to know that Grandma, I love you. I always will treasure you. Thank you for all the tremendous encouragement, all the hugs and kisses, and all the wonderful things you have said to me throughout the years. Thank you grandma for being the best in the world.

PS Grandma I'm writing you a song and I'm going to sing it everywhere and anywhere I can. I love you.
