Continued Light Blogging...

...with a chance of watery eyes.

This morning at about 11:00 AM, my wife's grandmother passed away peacefully at the age of 94. She was a wonderful lady who touched the lives of many people. She had fervently hoped to live long enough to see the second coming of Jesus Christ in her lifetime. She is survived by a son and a daughter, several grandchildren including The Queen and more than a couple of great grandchildren. She is also remembered and loved by many, many adopted "grandchildren".

She is missed.


  1. I'm sorry to hear that. Hugs to you and the Queen.

  2. Please accept my condolences. I'm very sorry for your loss!

  3. Sorry to hear about your loss, I'm sure that she is rejoicing with him as I type.

  4. I'm so sorry. Sounds like she had a long, full life.

  5. Thoughts and prayers for your family at this time.

    Is there anything we can do to help?
    It isn't that far of a drive (minutes) if you need anything.

  6. To all, thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. They are much appreciated.

    Bob S., I appreciate the offer; but, surprisingly, all the prearrangements went smoothly. Everything was taken care of and handled by about 2:00 yesterday afternoon. We do need to find an excuse to meet in meatspace one of these days though.

  7. I''m getting caught up on my reading and just heard. I am so very sorry for this loss withou your family. Big hug to you and the Queen.

  8. "She had fervently hoped to live long enough to see the second coming of Jesus Christ in her lifetime."

    Now she will get a private audience.


    Thank you for following me and adding to your blog roll. I will be adding you to mine.

  9. Brigid, thanks for the hugs and well wishes.

    North, welcome to the congregation. Thanks for the reciprocation.

  10. Shepard K,

    Prayers for comfort in fond memories and thoughts of peace to your family.
