Default My grandmother passed

Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts for my grandmother. She passed away last night (Thursday). She suffered no pain and went very peacefully. The wake is planned for Sunday and the funeral on Monday.

Today is my birthday but not much celebrating going on.

Again thank you friends for your prayers.

I'm sorry for your loss. There is a big empty space for us when our grandmothers pass away. My paternal grandmother died about 3-4 years ago up in Toronto at almost 102. I was sent pictures of her on her 100th birhday and she didn't look anything like the lady I knew. But, there is still that void.I'm sure she will always be with you in spirit. Keep plenty of pictures of her around, or at least one special one, and smile as you go by it each day. I'm sure that spiritually, you'll be receiving that smile back or a wink of her eye!
Take care. Lynne
Happy Birthday!

Condolences to you and your family Cheryl. Have faith that she is at peace now.
Sorry about your birthday. Maybe if you ignore it, it doesn't count, and you're not really 1 year older?

Cheryl, we are sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing. God has prepared a fabulous place for her to stay at and she'll be waiting to greet us all as we enter the paradise!

Thinking of you Cheryl and keeping you in my prayers as you get through the next few days.I'm sure you have lots of wonderful memories of your grandmother in your heart. My maternal grandfather passed away on my birthday and in an odd sort of way I like remembering him on that day as well as every other day.

Sorry to read of your loss, Cheryl. Both of my grandmothers passed away in their 90s, and my mom was also 91 when she was taken. I'm glad to see that Jennie passed peacefully and without suffering. My prayers will be offered for her soul, as well as for you and your family.

And for what it's worth, I wish a happy (belated) birthday to you in addition to my condolences.

Jack
