When I read this card, that's when it all tore loose:
Dear Leroy, (this is my family nickname)
Happy Housewarming! I hope you have many happy wonderful years in your house! I know Grandma would have been so happy to have had you next door - if for no other reason than the entertainment factor from keeping an eye on you! I found this pillowcase that Grandma had started just after your Wyatt housewarming and I knew I had to finish it out for you. I know there is no one she would have rather had it than you. I love you and I'm so happy you are more than just a sister, but also my closest friend and now neighbor!
Love you Leroy!
OH my gosh, I'm crying just reading it now. My grandmother was so very dear to me. Just a wonderful lady and to have the last pillowcase she worked on... on my gosh. I can't explain what it means to me. But to have a pillowcase with stitches from both Grandma and Katie, man, it's just very touching.
I did have a wonderful housewarming filled with family and friends! I so enjoy visiting with people, so it tickles me when I get the chance. And I will post pictures of my house, the before and after shots, hopefully tomorrow. For tonight, I'm exhausted and I'm heading for bed!
