Grandma Passed Away

Yesterday, my Mom called to let me know that my grandmother had passed away last Sunday. It was to be expected. Grandma had been ill since last January and many in the family suspected she would not even make it till her birthday, which was end of February.

She did, and reached the respectable age of 102 years! The picture below was taken when she turned 100 years of age.

Things went downhill after Grandma's birthday. She deteriorated fast. She got cervical cancer and due to her age, the doctors didn't think it wise to do surgery. She got morphine for the pain and had to have astronaut food because she couldn't eat anymore. Physically, she got worse, but mentally she was very much up to date until the end. Praise The Lord!

I can not tell you if she was saved. I don't know, but I pray she was. I would like to see her again one day. :-)

Ephesians 2
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

Corry and family, there is not a tear in heaven not one. But here on earth is so much different. I wish there were no tears here and no death but there is. I hope peace comes to you and yours and know that God Himself saw this and will and does comfort you.

Be loved you are. Mourn you will be comforted.

Corry -

I read this post the other day about your grandmother and have been praying for you and your family ever since in your loss.

It sounds like your grandmother was a dear woman who lived a life on this year many years past the time most of us die. For that you must be very thankful.

May God continue to be with you all during this time of great sadness.

Much love,
