Peace.

Early this morning, my beloved grandmother suddenly passed away.

I feel like my breath has been taken from me. She was the perfect wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and lived only to serve others.

I can only hope that one day I can live up to be half of the woman she was. I am grateful that we never watched her suffer. I know God has a plan for us all and that she is truly at peace now.

    Jessica – my mom, Sugar, sent me this link. I am so glad she did! Your grandmother was one of the rare ones. She had an inner light that was contagious. You couldn’t help but think that the world was a better place when you were around her. She inspires me to be a better person. Incidentality, I think the same thing about your grandfather. They are a perfect couple! And, while I haven’t seen them in years, I love them both dearly.

    I am sorry for your loss. I am thinking of you and your family. Send love to your mom, dad, and “Uncle Bill.”

    God bless!
