Today we joined with family and friends for my Grandma's funeral. She was 91 years old. I believe she did have faith in Jesus and is now in His presence. She was a wonderful woman and the best Grandma you could hope for. I am so thankful for her.
When I was a little girl I remember spending the night with my Grandma and having so much fun as she helped me bake little muffins, put curlers in my hair for a pretend "permanent" and gave me hot cocoa with marshmallows in it at bedtime. On my birthday I always got a card from her, signed with her beautiful handwriting, always with a little birthday money inside. As I grew up, when I visited my grandparents we would always have a cup of coffee in the afternoon around four o'clock. Often "coffee time" and watching "Jeopardy" on television coincided. :-) There are many happy memories of time spent with my Grandma. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to know her and spend time with her as I was growing up and as an adult. What a blessing grandparents are!!
It was good to see my dad and other relatives who came for the funeral, as we are all spread out across the country and don't get to see each other very often.
We will travel home tomorrow.
