5: "And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." - Abraham Lincoln

6: Jared & Judy spent 10 days in Shanghai, Hangjou and Ningbo. It wasn't the best time to leave, but we had already paid for our tickets and we needed to solve some problems we had with the swimsuit manufacturing. We enjoyed the chance to be together, and were glad to come home to the USA! | CHINA

10: BE MY VALENTINE

11: { | { | LOVE | We had our traditional family Valentines Day meal at breakfast this year so mom could spend the evening helping Grandma get ready for one last Sweetheart's Ball

13: Preston, Jaren, Blake, Sawyer, Cameron Nathan, Abby, Leslie, Jackson, Sheldon, Shelby, Dillon Colson, Carter, Lexi, Luke, Brock, Layla

14: LESLIE | ROMRIELL | 4.15.47 3.28.10 | Pocatello, Idaho | - | Ann Streeper

15: Our year began much like all the others, but soon took a dramatic turn. | We felt blessed to be able to have these pictures taken with Grandma Leslie just 5 days after her diagnosis | Barbara Streeper Taylor, Steven Streeper, Jeff Streeper, Joan Streeper Hansen Anna Nielsen Streeper, Leslie Streeper Romriell

16: We knew mom was suffering from short term memory loss and her balance was off, but she didn't consent to see a doctor until after Christmas. It was sad and ominous when she couldn't complete her phone number or her social security number. Finally the day came that I took her for an MRI, it was a brain tumor. A second and a third opinion confirmed that she had a glio blastoma multiforma primary brain tumor, and she wouldn't live more than 3 months. The news was crushing. Our beautiful and loving mother and grandmother was only able to walk for 6 more days, then was confined to a wheel chair. Her speech was already gone when the diagnosis came. She lost abilities before our eyes, It all started on the right side of her body, the drooping smile, the limp hand and leg. She was amazingly calm and at peace through it all. It was therapy to spend time with her. Feeding her, getting her dressed, getting her ready for bed. One thing that she never lost was her warm and loving spirit. You could see it in her shining happy eyes, and you could feel it in her countenance. She saved every ounce of focus and strength for her grandchildren who she cherished more than life itself. When a grandchild would walk through the door her face would light up and she would smile her beautiful half smile and nod to them, and give them the only thing she could, her love. Everyone felt it, her love could not be clouded by the tumor. The Lord blessed us with an amazing mother, and we were blessed to be able to take care of her for the last 3 months of her life. How thankful we are to our Heavenly Father for carrying us and strengthening us through those days and weeks with his tender mercies.

18: Mom's earthly struggles ended on a Sunday morning. Each of her children felt her comforting presence that day in private, individual moments.

19: The day of the viewing all of Leslie's children gathered at the Idaho Falls Temple. It was the first time every one had been together in the Temple. And there was not doubt that she was there. Her loving presence was strongly felt The line at mom's viewing went from the chapel doors, through all the halls around the gym to the other chapel doors, then out to the sidewalk. Many people waited for 3 hours to say goodbye to their friend. A tribute to the Christlike life that she led. Each of the hundreds of visitors had a story of caring, mom had touched each of their lives for good and would never be forgotten.

20: Grandpa Greg had all of the grandchildren ride in the limousine with him, I think they enjoyed that.(Even poor Colson who had an ear infection)

23: We had no way of knowing that it would also be the day after Grandma's funeral | As tired as we were, we carried on with our plan. The kids were amazing! Working so hard. There were even a few of Grandpa's friends who came to help. Thankfully, the children would be rewarded with an Easter party from their Aunt Annabeth!

The relatives had all gone home, but Judy's sisters left her a gift of a new outfit and a delicious ice cream cake! How thoughtful!
