Grandma Graves

All of my life, I have known the love of a grandma. This morning at 1:00 am, my grandmother passed into eternity to fully know the love of a Heavenly Father. I'm so excited for her that she is no longer suffering and that she is in the presence of God Almighty. I will miss her deeply. I remember....
  • always getting a big hug at the door of her home
  • hearing her tell stories that made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt
  • fried chocolate pies
  • never calling my husband JT but always referring to him as John
  • always going to church because hearing the Word was important
  • making family a priority
  • her deep loss and sadness over losing my Uncle Bill so early in life, losing my granddaddy and then missing my father.
  • her love for the Savior.

Grandma will be missed but she will not be missing us. Praise God for His goodness and mercy.
