I'm so sorry I've not posted in such a long while. We've had so much happening this last week but today, we just rested.
Last week, my husband's grandmother passed away. She was an amazing 94, almost 95 years old! She absolutely loved my husband. They had such a bond with each other. He's having a hard time but slowly realizing that this really did happen. She passed of nothing sudden or painful, just purely old age.
She was so good to all of our sons and they loved her too. She lived with my husband's parents for about 35 years as her husband passed away quite a while ago.
Dennis' (my husband) parents would get away from time to time and usually one of our five sons would go to spend the night with her so she wouldn't be alone. They all were able to have alot of one-on-one time with their great grandmother. She usually had groceries that she had purchased just for them and tried her hardest to feed them constantly during their stay. She would tell them many stories of her growing up and her life ~ her mind was so good even up until the end.
Our youngest son, Noah, only 9 years old, had a really hard time yesterday at the funeral. I tried to tell him that she was happy and healthy now in Heaven. Seeing all those who had passed over before her, her husband, mother, father and even her only son. That she could run, jump and rejoice in her new heavenly body. What a wonderful thing to know that we will see her again one day.
I don't know your beliefs or your faith but as Christians we believe that Christ came to this earth and loved us so much that He died on the cross to pay for all of our sins, and that with believing He did this for us, we have the comfort of knowing that we will one day join our loved ones again in Heaven.
I'm not trying to preach to you but just stating our beliefs as a family. It's just a beautiful promise we believe in!
Pictured below is my sweet family with my husband, our five sons, our oldest son Brent's girlfriend, Emily and myself yesterday. I love them all so much!!
