My husband's grandmother passed away on Thursday. It was very much expected and almost wanted because she'd been so sick for so long. So, we weren't terribly sad at the funeral.

In the bulliten for the funeral, though, they listed all her grandkids and great-grandkids. At the bottom it said, "She is preceeded in death by her great-grandson, Bryan Luke ____"

I can't tell you how much I cried just for reading that. They awknowledged him... without hesitation or asking us if we wanted it. They just did it.

Man, I love my family.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

That was a very, very beautiful thing for them to do. I wish my family had done that when my grandmother passed away in April. There was not one mention of Noah in the obituary --- not a mention of him being a great-grandchild nor that she was preceeded in death by him.

Yah, I was really angry, but I am VERY happy to see that your family remembered Bryan Luke.

Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

That is so nice. My paternal grandmother died this past spring and at her funeral I saw in her obituary it said she was preceded in death by her daughter Zelda (who was in her 50s), her grandson Lindel (in his 20s) and her grandson Bryan Keith O. (who had died 2 days after birth in 1975, Zelda's first child). I thought that was so sweet.
