In Memory of My Aunt Pam....

Two years ago today, My Aunt Pam went home to be with the Lord.... I think it's so bittersweet for those of us that live here on earth and miss her daily. We know she is no longer in pain, and as beautiful as ever. :) I thought I would share a story in remembrance of her....
4 1/2 years ago, while I was pregnant with the triplets, we found out it was 3 girls, we were so excited, and then came the fighting over girl names! :) So after days of arguing we did come to 2 conclusions, one would be Aspen (baby A) and would be Trinity (baby B originally, born baby C) because in the bible it means 3! That's a great name for Triplets!
So we moved on to Baby B names and middle names for all 3 girls... Aspen won right away with Danelle (after my sister) Then out of nowhere Kevin came from the back of the house and said "Jode, let's name her Jo after your Aunt Pam" I teared up and said "Ok who?" Trinity he said, her name is long, so she needs a little middle name, and I think it would be special.
The next day (due to hour change) I called her and ask her if we could name T after her.... She was so excited, and choked up! She said "Oh she is named after you and I" I said "No, Aunt Pam she is named solely after you!" My Aunt Pam as you all know by now is my favorite Aunt and I am honored to have named my daughter after her!
We Love and Miss you Aunt Pam! Love LJ and Trinity Jo

Awww-Jody I love hearing that story and seeing pictures of the girls. Neat picture of Dave at the school and the story about the girls at the store---aggghhhh! The girls are like that too but they are starting to like different things too so it is hard to know what to do about it! I am sure a day is coming soon when Kayleigh and Kiersten are not going to want to dress alike anymore and I will be sooo sad!!!
