Saying Goodbye to Grandpa Kunz

Today we buried my sweetest, cutest Grandpa Kunz. He died Monday peacefully in his sleep and we had his the funeral today. I was so looking forward to the funeral to celebrate the great life of my Grandpa. It was also so nice to be with all the family. I was excited to hear his life story and to remember what a great life he had lived. It was sad to say goodbye, but I know its only for a short time and we will be reunited. Here are a few pictures of my sweet Grandfather, Milton Miner Kunz.Wasn't he handsome.
I love his smile in the picture. He was always upbeat and happy. When you asked him how he was doing he would always say "I'm fit as a fiddle."
Here he is with my Grandma BettyJo. He loved her so much and they really were such a example of true love. I can only imagine the happiness on Monday when they were finally reunited in heaven. My Niece Chole sang the 1940's jazz song "At last" and it was so fitting. At last they are with each other.
This is the Grandpa I remember. He had a twinkle in his eye.
Here we are at the cemetery in Globe saying are last goodbyes in this life.
Jo Jo and Daddy. I know he is looking down on us and will help us get through this life. We will miss him.

JoJo is 4 on the 4th!

I can't believe my little boy is 4 years old. He has been such a sweet blessing in my life and I can't imagine my world without him. Here are a few pictures of JoJo on his birthday and the little BBQ we had for him to celebrate his birthday and the 4th of July.I just love his sweet little face.
Born on the 4th of July!
I think he new it was his birthday. He was happy all day and woke up that day at 4:30am ready to go.
We took him to Toys R US to pick out some videos and he was SOOOOO serious and so into finding the perfect ones.
Studying the videos he picked out.
We got him a trike too. He was working with his OT Meg in Ithaca with one so we thought it would be a perfect present. As you can see John was loving it.
JoJo, not so much. He was to into his new videos.
We made him go out and ride it though and I think he liked it.
