Easter 2012

We had a great Easter this year with our family.  Trace and Noal both loved hunting Easter eggs and of course getting more candy than we will be able to eat in a year.  We also had great fellowship with our Sunday School class over breakfast.  However, little did we know just how special Easter was going to be for our family.  It was the last moment we were able to spend with Chad's Memaw who passed away on April 11.

On Easter Sunday, the Mitchell family, gathered at Gramps and Memaw's just like we do every Sunday for dinner after church.  Then we had an Easter Egg hunt for all of the great-grandkids.  It was a very special time then and even more so now since it was the last Sunday that Memaw would be with us for Sunday dinner.

For those of you that aren't from Erin, the Mitchell family is a huge family... 52 decedents from Gramps and Memaw alone to be exact.  It is truly a unique family to have the fortune to be a part of.  Extremely close, extremely loving, and extremely loyal.  Of the 52 decendents, all of us live within a 50 mile radius of Erin, TN where the family resides.  Even though I am not a blood relative, to Gramps, and especially, Memaw, that has not made a difference, I was one of their grandchildren.  I am more than blessed to have become a member of this wonderful family and to have know Memaw for the past eight years.  She was the matriarch of the family and the best role model for being a true woman of God that anyone could have.  Memaw will be greatly missed, but I can only imagine the celebration that is going on in Heaven as God called one of his best home a few days ago.

He is Risen.... and he has called Memaw home.  That is an Easter to be happy about.
