Gram & Kate Aug. 2008/as a young lady in 1938
As we gathered around your bedside on Friday night I felt the most calm yet joyful reverence I ever remember feeling. There must have been a glorious reunion in the room that was beyond our sight. It was a privilege to be there. Grandma, will you come for us when it is our turn to go?
Did you hear Danny that night when he asked you to watch over us and our little girls? They love you. Sophie has mentioned you in every prayer since you left. Ellie found the dress you were making for her doll. She wants to finish it for you. I have been going through the pictures I have of your life, and I found a series with you and Kate playing in your guest bedroom...I am going to frame it for her room.
After you left that night we were all still there- Papa, Michel, Jimmy, Paul, Amanda, Randy, Sharon, Jason, Danny and I- already your home seemed empty. All of your earthly possessions were there in front of us, yet we could feel that your presence was missing. All of a sudden the things of this world seem a lot less important and we are reminded that our love and memories are our real treasures.
Thank you Grandma for all that you have taught us.
We hold you in our hearts always.
