my sweet grandma

This morning my sweet grandma Joan Lewis Peterson passed away. She put up a hard fought battle with breast, lymph and liver cancer for over two years. Through it all my sweet little grandpa was with her, every step of the way. They love they have for eachother is almost unreal. I am so grateful for being able to have such a wonderful relationship with my grandma all throughout my life. What a blessing she has been to me and my family! She was absolutely crazy about McKenna and McKenna was absolutely crazy about her. My sweet grandma was with me when I delivered Kenna and she loved being able to tell everybody she could that she cut McKenna's umbilical cord. My grandma was born in 1931, making her almost 79 and would have been married to my grandpa 59 years this April 11th. I have so many wonderful memories of my grandma and I love her with all of my heart!
