This much beloved lady enjoyed her family most of all, especially at gatherings throughout the year and all of the family really looked forward to meeting at Granny’s house. She always dedicated her life to the Lord and put her family’s needs ahead of her own at every opportunity. She loved to spend her alone time with her flowers and birds and working puzzles. And she actually loved doing her housework and cooking, which she really didn’t consider work at all.
So, in closing Mom, we all love you dearly and are going to miss you so much. The pain in our hearts cannot be described, and we are trying to hold on to how much better off you are now that the cancer can no longer cause you pain. As they say, this is not goodbye, rather it’s see you later. What an incredible lady and what an awesome journey.
God Bless you Mom and Godspeed!
