Grandma Barb’s This and That

Friday, May 17, 2013

My dear beautiful mother passed away Thursday, May 16th.  My daughter posted this picture and words on her Facebook page.  I cannot say them any better.




"96 years you blessed us here on earth, now those in Heaven are blessed with you for eternity. Love to my grandma who lived a long life but never grew old"


Thanks to all of you for your prayers!  They mean a lot.

Barb

I don't know the circumstances of your mom's passing, but to know that she is in Heaven makes it hard to wish her back here - for her sake. My thoughts are with you and your family, the ones left here to grieve and to miss her. I am sorry for your heartache. I lost my mom a few years ago and understand the pain. May God give you peace through this difficult time.

I've been praying for all of you since your last post, and will continue to do so. No matter how 'prepared' you are, you're never ready to lose a parent...and no matter how long you've had them with you, it's never quite long enough. She was a beautiful lady who raised a wonderful daughter...and the words your daughter posted were absolutely lovely.
