In Loving Memory

We just returned from Maryland for the funeral of Scott's Grandmother. She was an amazing lady who has left an amazing legacy in her family and her example to others throughout her life. She was known for her hour-long daily prayers in which she pleaded to our Heavenly Father for each and every member of her family by name. At 86 years old, up until the last four months of her life, she was very active and went to the gym to work out several times a week! She loved to play Scrabble and was a fierce competitor. She always had a positive attitude and encouraging words for those around her. She loved her family and we all knew it. We are so grateful for her example of faith and her incredible energy and attitude. This picture of her and Scott was taken over Christmas, when we got to spend some time with her and enjoy her winks and smiles for the last time in this life.We will miss her terribly, but we know that we will see her again. How grateful we are for this knowledge that gives us peace and comfort while we mourn her passing and celebrate her life. We love you, Grandma!

Hi Scott. So sorry to hear about the loss of your grandma. I am happy I got to know her a little bit as well. She is a great woman. Your family is like my family to me and I hope you all are doing well.

Oh Jennifer, tears starting falling from my eyes as I saw that picture of Scott and Grandmom Woltz. Any chance you can email me that photo? Do you have other ones from the funeral, especially the ones of the whole family together, none of my turned out. I miss her so much ! What a wonderfully touching photo.
