Cali, Family & Friends

Unfortunately my grandfather passed away and I went to California(where I am from) and said my last goodbye. When dealing with death you feel so many different emotions. Why I cried with sadness knowing I will never get to hear my grandfathers voice again, I had the opportunity to visit with friends and family I have not seen in many years. While I am far from done with completing my scrapbook "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye" below are some layouts I completed this weekend capturing moments throughout my visit. ENJOY!
