My deepest sympathy for your loss. What seems to be a long life is never long enough where our loved ones are concerned. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels the same way. That is why He has promised to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises be a soothing balm for your grieving hearts.

As Kelle said in her F.B. Post, "Heaven got a little sweeter today" I just want to say what a Sweet Lady Grand Mom was. And what an honor to have known her for the last 18 years. Loved her laugh, her smile and her ways. it is no wonder that she raised such a wonderful family that i a blessed to be a part of. Sorry I had conflicts and couldn't be there with you for support. May the grace and peace of God that surpasses all understanding according to Philippians 4:7 abide with you all in the coming days, weeks and moths ahead. God Bless You, Drew
