An unexpected trip

Sadly earlier this week Chris’ Grandma passed away. As a 96 year old Christian lady, although we are saddened that she has left her earthly home, we also celebrate her passing into glory. It also meant that we made an unexpected  visit to Brisbane for her funeral.

We took the opportunity to make some important stops, visiting Chris’ Nanna:

The graves of my grandparents (and great-grandparents):

And some of our favourite spots in Brisbane, Mt Coot-tha and Southbank:

It was also really special to catch up with so many of Chris’ cousins at once. We were only sorry that we didn’t have longer to spend with them.

Today we are thankful for family, and in particular for the life of Grandma Porter and the legacy she left behind.
