Celebrating Grandma's Life

...with family and so many friends. What a privilege!

Ninety-seven years of a life well-lived, here on earth--

Now, a new life in heaven with her Lord and other beloved ones.

So much to celebrate.

All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

~1 Corinthians 15:39-44

It's hard to let people go, but glorious to realize that they are with our Savior. :) Praise the Lord that your grandma is in her eternal home! You seem to be handling it all very well, but, you are in my prayers!

Thinking of you and your family as you celebrate the homecoming of your grandma - keeping you in prayers.
