In Loving Memory


My beautiful grandmother, Louise Bisel passed away last night. She had been struggling with her health for quite some time, and was brought home to be made comfortable and to be with family these last few days. I was lucky enough to be in Kamas for the weekend, so I was able to visit her yesterday. I will miss her so much...from her snappy humor to her always put-together look, from her beautiful singing voice to her sweet smile and laugh.

More than any other lesson she has taught me, I have learned from my Grandma how to love your husband. The relationship of my grandparents is a perfect example of love and care for each other. As long as I can remember, I have seen my grandparents pay sweet affectionate attention to each other. They have constantly acted like newlyweds, and have set the bar high for their children and grandchildren.

I have so many memories of my beautiful Grandma, and am happy to be able to celebrate the life she lived. I love you, Grandma!

Thank you for that beautiful post. You are absolutely right about Grandma and Grandpa's relationship. Even right to the end, Grandpa gave his all to her, helping her every way he possibly could. The example they have set for the rest of us is definitely inspiring. Thank you for being intuitive enough to see this. Love, Mom

Hey.. SO sorry to hear about your grandma! I was shocked when I read it! I'm way out of the Kamas loop so this is the first time I'm hearing the news. Hope you're doing well! Are you going to be in Utah the week of June 10th or 17th? I'm having a shower on one of those Saturday's at Kati's. I'll send you an invite anyway even if you can't come! lOVE YOU!!!
