For those of you who follow me  on Instagram, you probably already know that my sweet, hilarious, say it like you mean it, 98 year old grandmother passed away earlier this month. When someone lives for so many years, raises great children who took care of her all the way to the end, survived an amazing husband who worshiped the ground she walked on — the funeral or home-going is a celebration of life! Because we were celebrating we wore bright colors, pink, bold patterns and sent her off as beautifully as she lived!

I leave you with a picture of Mrs. Alma Aikens James at her 90th birthday party where we asked her if she lived to be 100 what she wanted for her birthday, and she said with a straight face — "a casket". Ha! RIP little lady! 


  1. 98 years-that's indeed a celebration of life.
    Beautiful dress; I like the prints.
    Have a blessed week.

  2. I am so exceedingly sorry to hear of the passing of your grandmother. What an accomplishment to live for 98 years. I'm sorry for your loss. I lost both of my grandmothers and it is a pain that is hard to cope with. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  3. Your beautiful tribute to your grandmother (my mom) brought tears to my eyes! The bright colors and bold prints of your dress were perfect for your grandmother's home-going.

  4. My condolences on the loss of your vibrant grandmother. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Life seems so unfair sometimes but things happen the way they do for a reason, strength, resolve, and love. <3

  5. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I think the dress you chose was a beautiful way to celebrate her.
