My Beautiful Grandma

My beautiful Grandma passed away this morning.
My mom said it was beautiful.
 She and Kathy, her sister,
 had just finished reading the Psalms to her and she went peacefully.


Eternal rest, grant unto her O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon her.

May she rest in peace. Amen.

May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Amen.

My favorite picture of my Grandma, holding my first born daughter.
 I loved seeing her, in her 80's at the time,
 holding new life.

I am so very sad, 
especially being so far away, 
I am missing the time we were not able to spend together, 
and remembering the times we did.

Today is my dad's birthday.

Life and death 
both such mysteries

  5. I am so sorry, Jamie. As hard as it is, we can only be grateful, that because of her faith, she will join the Communion of Saints, and you'll have another intercessor in heaven!

  7. I take comfort in thinking that my grandparents, none of whom I ever got to know, will be among the first to welcome me to our final home. Every tear will be wiped away, sweet Jamie! Imagine the walks that you'll take with your beautiful grandma.

    PS. Happy birthday to your dear Papà!
