Grandma – this wonderful woman with her warm and wise words always being able to counsel me. How can she do that? She lived in a totally different time and still is able to completely find the right words for everything. Now that I write this article, it seems unimaginable to me to think that she might not be present on my wedding day. She’s really another dimensioned version of a best friend for me. After all, besides all those sad laws of life, I know there are those kind and wise words, memories and times spent together that will always stay with me.
So, beware as this might be the sweetest thing you will see today. Just like me, Christine Quinn seems to be so closely related to her grandmother. She even made the decision to ask her 89-year-old grandmother to be her bridesmaid.
Look at the sweet pictures below:
Christine Quinn said:
“She had the entire wedding party laughing with her words of wisdom and funny comments throughout the day. Nana got on the party bus with the rest of the wedding party instead of ‘going home to rest’ but did not tell my mom (her daughter). She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing.”
“You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today,” Nana Betty told Christine.
“She asked me about 10 times, ‘Are you sure?’ and ‘Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party?’” Christine said.
Christine wasn’t too sure what to expect, but it turns out it was the best decision she had ever made.
Nana Betty seems to be the life of the party and no doubt they both look absolutely beautiful together in these pictures. Once again, one comes with the theory that age is just numbers, and as Nana Betty told Christine, “you’re only as old as you feel.”
