My Grandpa Howell was so much fun. I remember when I was little he would throw me up in the air, play tick tock with me (hold me by my feet and swing me like a grandfather clock), he would set up the hamick for us and push us on the swings. I loved by Grandpa Howell. Unfortuneately he suffered from Alheimers desease for around 10 years which led to his death on October 6, 2009. These are pictures of the funeral. He was in the Army and they had a really good and respectful funeral service for him.

Who says you can't have a good time at a funeral?
On the same note, my nephew Will (left) was very sad about the whole thing. He is so tender hearted and loved Grandpa Howell as well.

Ladd and Laurie
This is my Grandma Howell. It was a relief for her that her husband was able to leave this life becasue it made her sad and it was a too hard of a task to care for him.
Isn't it ironic that the cemetary is right by the temple? Life doesn't stop at the grave, it is eternal:)
