My Grandmother

After a 101 years on this earth, my Grandmother passed away last Wednesday. This was not a sad occasion. Just imagine all the changes she has seen in her time! And she seemed to take them in stride. She lived through 2 world wars. She moved with her family to a new country with a new language when she was nearly 50. She raised 7 children, saw them all married, and survived them all. She had more than 40 grandchildren, 60 great grand children and 4 great, great grandchildren. The family celebrated her life at her memorial service. They shared memories, and especially laughter and good times.
She is with the Lord now, as she wished.
