Yesterday, I recieved one more call

Yes, it's true.  Yesterday, my mother called me to tell me that her mother, my Nanny, had passed away.  Now all of my grandparents are with the Lord.  My nanny died only weeks after her twin sister and only days after her husband.  I'm sure that she is so glad to be reunited with them.

Nanny, here are some of my fondest memories of you:

-Your gifts were always never-ending and original.  You liked to shop at garage sales and send me the collection of eclectic treasures that you would find.  They were so fun.

-The 5 dollar bills that you sent to me in my birthday cards were the most crisp and valued pieces of paper I ever owned.  5 dollars was a fortune to me.

-You were so crafty and loved to make things for us.  I still have the doll quilt that you made for me so long ago.  It is well loved.

-Some people say that I look like you, and I think that is really special.

As I think about all of these grandparents (3) that have passed on to glory within the past month, I was comforted by the words of this song.  We will miss them all dearly, but are so glad that they are no longer suffering in their old bodies.

I’m so sorry for all the loss in your family. My grandfather passed away in January, and I totally wasn’t expecting it (or the grieving afterwards.)

It seems a comfort (in some ways) that your Nanny went so soon after her husband and twin. A comfort, but still very hard.

I think that song is my most-played song on iTunes.
