My grandmother passed away early this morning. She is survived by seven children, thirteen grandkids and another thirteen great-grandchildren (with two more on the way).
Just last year, she and my Grandpa celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, a family legacy that I am proud to share.
She was surrounded by love and had many visitors throughout each day over the past several months and I’m so grateful that I was able to see her and hug her a month ago.
On my quick visit with her, I complimented her on her fingernails, which were long and beautifully painted a bold red. The color suited her perfectly. She was sitting quietly when we arrived, wrapped in a colorful shawl that was handmade especially for her. She seemed at peace then and it warmed me to be in her presence even though I knew she was on the final lap of her journey here with us.
She is truly at peace now and although she will be missed, she will not be forgotten.
