My thoughts and prayers are sent to the family. I know that “Grandma” meant alot to all of you throughout the years. She loved you all. Though her mental clarity may have failed her in her later years, she now has perfect, clear thoughts. Through hope in Christ, one day you will see her again and you will both rejoice. Until that time, may God use the gift of memory to touch and comfort your hearts.
