In remembrance...

We received the news that my (Garden) Grandma went to be with the Lord yesterday, exactly one year to the day that my Grandpa passed away. They were married 57 years.

It was just last Saturday that we were in Mo and got to visit with Grandma. She was so excited to meet Ayana for the first time. Thank you Lord for that precious time!



I love you Grandma, give Grandpa a hug for us.

I'm sorry for your loss as well. She was an attractive lady. None of us know the hour or the day when we will meet our Lord and Saviour face to face.

I can imagine how you feel right now. God bless.

I am sorry to hear about your loss but am exceedingly glad for the precious time you got with her before her passing. THe picture you have of her holding Ayana will be treasured forever. Ayana is changing so much too - wow. Beautiful little girl.

Amber,

I'm so sorry for your loss. It has to be comforting to know that she was able to see Ayana. Now she and your grandpa can be together again.

Amber, that is so precious. What an amazing woman your Garden Grandma was. (She always had a big garden, so the kids just named her garden grandma theirselves). She was such a loving and caring Grandma to you kids. I know how your heart must feel right now. I am praying for you and your Dad and Aunts. I love you, Mom xoxo

I am so sorry for your loss. It is such a blessing that you got that time with her last weekend and that she got to meet Ayana, God is good. We will keep you all in our prayers.

I know we talked about how hard she was taking the loss of your Grandfather and how much she missed him, I can only imagine how much she rejoiced when they were reunited.

We love you, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help!

What a blessing that you were able to come up and visit with her just before. I have so many good memories of being at Grandma and Grandpa's. Playing Dominos and any other of the million games in her game closet. Playing pool in the basement. Dressing up in her dress-up clothes. Eating candy from one of her goody bowls. Watching golf with Grandpa on mute! Having Christmas there when Dad and Roxanne would come up. Going to breakfast together.
We love you Grandma and Grandpa!
