Grandma Pope

Leah May Carson Pope, my grandmother, passed away last week. She was one of the most genuine, kind, fun people I have ever known. She will be missed so much, but I smile every time I think about the reunion she must be having with my grandfather who passed away 13 years ago. She is tied to so many of my childhood memories and I feel so lucky to have been able to spend so much time with her growing up. Her funeral was wonderful. I thought that the culmination of all of the stories and memories shared captured her beautifully and it was great to be with so much family and celebrate such a wonderful human being. I love you Grandma.
