Grandmother

1.21.2012

She let me spend the night anytime I wanted- which meant I was there almost every weekend.

She was there for every figure skating competition and cheerleading performance, every school play, and every sporting event. Not just for me but for all of her Grandkids.

She made me the best homemade milkshakes you have ever tasted- usually vanilla with a little nutmeg sprinkled on top.

She would wash my feet with a warm cloth before we put on my tights for church.

She was a wonderful cook and made the best turkey and dressing you have ever had.

She could peel an apple and keep the peel all in one piece.

She went to church every Sunday and loved to teach people about the Bible.

She always made the most delicious fruit salad and homemade whipped cream for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

She was married to my Grandad for 62 years and they loved each other so much- for richer and for poorer- in sickness and in health.

She had 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 15 great grandchildren and she was SO proud of all of them.

She would do anything and everything for all of us.

She was our rock, our role model, and our mentor.

She was our everything.

And though we are all heartbroken and left wondering how we will ever get by without her, we know God is rejoicing to have such a beautiful and precious woman in His Kingdom.


We love you so very much Grandmother. Thank you so much for the wonderful influence you had on all of us and for showing us unconditional love. You and Grandad taught us all what true love looks like and I am so proud to be your granddaughter. You will be missed more than words could ever say.

Tami- my heart just hurts for you and your sweet family. I was just texting your mom this morning. I didn't get online yesterday at all and didn't find out until a few hours ago. I'm praying for you guys and I'm here if you need me. Losing a grandparent is so hard.....remind me to tell you about my dream that I had last night when we can talk again. Love you sweet friend.

I know this is so late, I haven't had a chance to get on a computer and I hate leaving comments from my phone.

I am so sorry to hear about your Grandmother. They're so special and it sounds like yours was extra. I know it's hard to be away, especially during times like this. My heart just hurts for you. I've been praying and thinking of y'all.
