Grandpa & Grandma Peters and the Dinh family

My Grandma Love died on February 28, 2015. When I heard the news from my sister, I put my feelings away. I didn’t want to deal with grief and I avoided thinking about it. I knew that I needed to sit quietly and reflect about what she meant to me, but I avoided it until today. Continue reading

Photos from our first day in Singapore
