Yesterday-my grandmother passed away at the young age of 92.
She had a wonderful life and passed peacefully overnight.
She was in good health, mind, and faith-she had a very blessed, fulfilled life.
She seemed to be ready though-she finished all her christmas gifts, paid her taxes, cleaned her house, finished the babies blankets, and went to sleep Monday night.
She was a woman ahead of her time in many regards and I can only hope that I will live up to her legacy.
She wrote a book last year and had copies made for all of us in the family-which is a huge family BTW. It was a memoir of the life, love, faith, funny and hard times, and lots of pictures. I hope to share it with the girls some time and show them what they should aspire to be like when they grow up.
I was very close to her - I am of course having a very hard time saying good-bye. Per drs orders I won't be attending the out of town funeral and memorial. My family is sending sopies of everything, but I can't imagine not being there.
This is going to be a very hard christmas I think!
