A Life Lived

My Grandmother, Virginia Tuell Kraft, passed away early Saturday morning. Family will be gathering over the next couple of days and we will grieve the loss of a loved one together.

However, there’s nothing sad about a life lived. The family is what she helped make it. And she’s been able to be a part of so much of it.

I’ll share a favorite image of mine, which in my eyes says all there is to say. A resolute Mom with her children in a time of war while her husband fights on the other side of the world. Dignity, maternal strength, holding a family together - all qualities that defined her life and legacy.
