"Good Bye" Dear Grandma

After 96 years on this earth, you went home last evening. You...were the best, kindest, most caring, most accepting, least judgemental, hardest working, and most fun grandma to me and to all of your family. We will miss you so much!! -----pictured above with one of her great, great-granddaughters



Five generations. How blessed we were to have you with us for so many years. "At dusk, a little girl entered a cemetery. An old man who sat at the gate said to her, "Aren't you afraid to go through the cemetery in the dark?" "Oh no,", she replied, "my home is just on the other side." --Henry Dwibanville

I'm sorry for your loss. It's such a bittersweet thing when we lose someone so good who has lived a long life. We lost my husband's grandmother last year and she was 92. Sounds like she was alot like your grandma.

I'm sure you will treasure the pictures of the generations.

Judy, I pray the comfort of the Lord for you and your family as you continue to remember the precious things about Grandma!

My Grandpa went to the Lord 10/31/07 and Grandma 4/19/90. I miss them both more than words can say. They were like parents to me.

Bless you my friend.

Sorry for your loss. Does not matter how long we had them it is always hard to lose those we love.

What a blessing to have still had your grandma and for your children to have known her. Must say I am envious of that.

Looks like she has left a wonderful legacy.
