yesterday morning at 10:30 a.m I became an aunt for the 4th time. My brother had his 3rd baby ...a girl. And ironically enough, she doesn't have a name yet. I'll keep you posted on my new niece's name. she is healthy and everyone is doing well.
yesterday afternoon around 1:30p.m my grandmother was called to enter the kingdom of God. She left her earthly body just three hours after the birth of her twentieth great-grandchild. My soul is empty and aching for her. I wanted desperately to hold her hand one last time and to tell her I loved her. but i know she knew. even with the disease, she knew to the very depth of her soul how much I loved her.
I leave for St. Louis today at 3:45. I meet with my aunt, uncle and mom tomorrow at the funeral home to discuss the arrangements. the viewing will be on Wednesday at Null and Son funeral home in Rolla, Missouri. The funeral service and burial will be on Thursday and I will return home to TX on Saturday evening.
Thanks to all of you that have been praying for her over the course of the year. She is home now. She is at peace. She can see & feel & reflect on her life from the heavens above. I will miss her while I walk the rest of my days her without her but I will rejoice when I get to embrace her again in God's kingdom.
