Ruhe in Frieden

We have been away.........to take Katrina back to college, visit Mickey Mouse and rest a bit with our feet in the ocean. [This was the first real vacation I have had in a long time]

When you travel, you expect to return home to the way things have always been.

Sadly, this trip we returned home to the loss of our beloved PopPop. I adored my father-in-law and my heart is so heavy at this loss. Emma Sage is having a hard time dealing with this loss, as she just does not fully understand why she saw him when she left and that he is not back at home with Grammy.

Otto Hintz was an amazing man. He was the 'salt of the earth' and I am honored that my son is named after him.

Ruhe in Friden ~ Rest in Peace
Otto, Otto and Otto?
