This past week was the last time I will be visiting San Diego for a long while. My grandmother used to live in Poway; but within the last five years, she got cancer twice and after her moving to South Carolina so we could help, she passed. She wanted to be in the ocean when she died and we didn't think it was right to put her in the Atlantic. Grandma was a Southern California girl all the way and loved the ocean and palms of California.
It was a beautiful ceremony and family that I haven't seen in years was there to celebrate her life. I wanted to share some of the photos from my trip, but I couldn't just post them and pretend there was a happy reason that I was there. I see Grandma everywhere and I hope you can see her beautiful influence in some of these images.
