Prayer request

I just received word that my maternal grandmother passed away this morning. I'm very happy that she is no longer in any pain, and that she is in the loving arms of her Father.

Please pray for my grandfather, my mom and her two sisters. We are all happy Grandmother is better, but there is still grief for those left behind who will miss her.

Oh, Courtney! I am so sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing, but I'm happy she is with the Lord. Big hugs to you! I know you will miss her, but it's so great to have the memories and legacy she left for you, and to know you'll see her again someday.

:-( I'm sorry to hear this news. I'm crying big tears right along with you! Even when death is a blessing, saying goodbye still stinks. Even though it's been nearly 4 and 5+ years since my grandmothers passed on, there isn't a day go by that I don't miss them. They were my heros!

Never underestimate the Lord's timing and purposes, however.

The link above is to a super neat thing that happened a few weeks after we brought our boys home. It's about my kids and my grandmas :-) I hope it will bring peace and happiness to your heart.

I am sorry to hear about your grandmother. I remember feeling the same way when my grandmother died but I still miss her deeply even though it has been two years. I am glad the boys are doing so well. Deonna never fails to amaze us daily. She still remembers Dima and speaks often of the "detski doma" but I think she has finally realized that she is with us forever. Take care and I will keep your family in my prayers.
