February 22, 1934-March 26, 2012
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
I Thessalonians 4:13-14
My dear grandma went to be with the Lord ten days after my grandpa died. I went to visit her after my grandpa's funeral on our way home last week, 6 days before she died, and even though she had physically aged and had lost much of her ability to communicate in the past year, I still saw glimmers of the wonderful woman I knew so well and will miss so much. As I said good-bye and told her that I loved her, her last words to me were, "I love you, too." And I know she did and I know she thought and prayed for me and all of her family.
