Great Grandma Lonegan

While in CT we stopped an had a visit with Ed's Grandma, Isabelle Lonegan. Anya's middle name is Isabelle. She is a wonderful woman and will be 92 on Feb. 28th. It was so nice to have a visit with her to have the kids play. Ed's Parents live downstairs in the same house and everytime we go up to Great Grandma's house Anya gets excited to play dolls with her. Grandma can't get on the floor and play but her house is full of wonderful little figurines and treasures that Anya just loves. The dolls that Grandma got just for her house are one of her favorites. It is so nice to spend time with her. I am in awe of the strength and will of Grandma. Not many people are still living on their own at 92. Her sight and hearing and strength are begining to weaken but I still view her as a strong woman. I am very grateful we took the time to stay and visit with her and her cat. Anya and Kevin had a great time hearing her sing and playing with her. It was a very nice visit. This is an old photo of when Kevin was just new.

I have a great aunt who is getting up there in age. Everytime we head to VT we see her. Margaret is named afet her husband's parents. Cherished memories that can't be replaced by anything.
