A Very Sad Weekend

This weekend was a sad weekend for my Mom's family. My Great Uncle Scott (Mom's 49 year old uncle and Bobpy's younger brother...) passed away after having a terrible accident falling down the stairs in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Dad took me to my Grammie and Papa's house during the Day on Saturday, so Mom could tend to her grandmother, Nana A., who was having to deal with the loss of her son. Later that day, Nana A. came to stay with us and my Uncle Todd and Aunt Lisa came over for dinner that night and we had a little family gathering so we could try to lift Nana's spirits. I made my best effort to cheer her up being my cute baby self and I think I did a pretty good job, considering the circumstances. Unfortunately, I woke the household up twice in the night for some odd reason (I never do that anymore).

My Great Uncle Judd and my Grandfather, Bobpy (who was in Bermuda with my Gram on vacation when the accident happened), came in town late last night to help Nana and to assist in funeral preparations, so Nana went back to her house and I miss having her undivided attention and affection! She sure gave me lots of kisses while she was visiting...She had three boys, so she knows all about what it's like to have a rambunctious boy running around and how to keep us entertained and happy!

We will sure miss Uncle Scott and will always remember what a fun and caring Uncle he was.
