A Wonderful Lady


I apologize for not blogging sooner.  I honestly don't know where last week went.  I remember Monday and Tuesday.  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are a blur.  I suspect illness, allergies and general craziness are to blame, both mine and other members of this house hold.  Saturday I do remember.  Saturday is the day that John's Grandmother passed.  We knew it was coming, but somehow it was still a shock to hear it.  She has been saying, "I won't be around much longer." for at least the last 25 years.  It was the standing joke among her family.  Even the Priest at the service joked that she had been anointed at least 30 times thinking each one would be her last.  The last 2 years were the roughest for her.  She was always an active and strong lady.  The loss of her sight and hearing, as well as several strokes left her depending on others, something I know caused her great remorse.  She would have turned 102 this July and had her first great-great grandchild in just a few weeks.  She touched so many lives.  It was a true testament to her personality to see the church packed at her service.  She was truly was a wonderful lady.  She will undoubtedly be missed.
