The Uplifter Blog : Travelling to Ireland to celebrate life...

My Grandmother, Mary Wright was born in Ireland in 1926 and had three children, each of which were fiercely creative. And so the cycle of creativity was born and slowly began to work its was through the generations... In december this year Grandma Uplifter passed away at the age of 90 and brought all of our family together to be with her in Ireland to celebrate her life. There really isn't much to say except that it was perfect.

The little town she lived in was all lit up with Christmas lights, the local church held it's annual carol service the night before the funeral in the same church she would frequent many years and children sang carols in the streets holding candlelit lanterns... It all felt right and it was an extremely significant weekend for my family - It brought us even closer together...And we're already very close x
