Rest peacefully Grandma, for it is well-earned. You gave so very much to so many, and never asked for anything in return. You have always been an inspiration and an anchor in my life; a life that would have been over far too soon, without your faith and prayers. I am so sad you are gone, but relieved you are free of suffering and at peace with the Lord. God Bless you will never be forgotten. Until we meet again, Mem
