I wasn’t ready, but it happened anyway.
My heart, my pillar, my Grandma left us early this morning. I went over to see her and she looked peaceful.

She just turned 89 almost 3 weeks ago, then her body couldn’t fight her illness any more. She declined rapidly, but still communicated with us up until the day before. We hated to see her in pain, and helpless. She was always fiercely independent & did life her way.

She loved. She served. She laughed. She taught. Her personality lit up every room she entered. Her love for youth was unmistakeable. She impacted many generations and her ripple effect will touch many lives for years to come. She is now reunited with her daughter, my mother. I wish I could see their faces!!!!

Please keep our family in prayer.
This is a very difficult time for all of us.

Thank you.
