On Thursday January 10, 2008 around 1pm my Grandmother passed away. It was somewhat of a shock as she was really doing much better, but within two days she spiraled downhill. I think she was ready to let go and was tired of fighting with her body. Scott and I leave for St. Lois this afternoon where the funeral will be on Monday. We will return late Tuesday night. I'm looking forward to showing Scott all the places my grandmother had made an impression on. There is nothing worse than the feeling of losing someone you love so much...it just feels like someone kicked you in the stomach. The memories rush through my mind trying to remember them all... almost in a panic not to forget any. With God as my strength, I will make it through this. Please pray for us as a family to come together and celebrate her life!
