Yesterday, my grandmother rejoined her Father inside those pearly gates. She lived 86, nearly 87 years. The last year or so was difficult for her. I am glad she is finally at peace.

These are a few things I've remembered during the past 24 hours:
  • She often offered Moon Pies and Coke when we came over.
  • She made splendid pudding pies.
  • I remember playing with a set of Lincoln Logs for hours over at her house.
  • She had a fun aluminum Christmas tree.
  • The light of different colors that shone on that tree was stuck on just one color for as long I can remember.
  • She was a lover of crossword puzzles.

Thes are just some things that immediately pop into my mind when I think of Grandmommy. I lover and I'll miss her.

I am thankful that God gave me 50 years with one grandmother, she was 95 when she passed. My other grandmother died when I was 21. I definitely have more memories of one than the other, but nevertheless thankful for their love. I pray that the Lord will continue to comfort you, your siblings and your dad. May your celebration of her life and the hope of reunions bring you all peace. Sorry I will miss the visitation tomorrow night, I had already bought tickets for a Christmas concert.
