Catching up.

This weekend was sad and sweet. We said goodbye to my Grandpa John, our gentle, funny, tremendously loving patriarch. He joined his lifetime sweetheart, my Grandma Katie. I’m sure she was waiting for her “Johnny”.

I got to spend some brief hours with my lovely family, and I know my grandparents would have loved how we came together to celebrate them both. The world seems a little different now knowing that they’re both no longer here, but they live in all of us.

Once we got home, Pumpkin asked, “Mama, what’s my middle name?”
I told her, “Kathryn, after Grandma Katie.”
She responded happily, “Grandma Katie catched up with Grandpa John!”
Is she really only three?
