End of an Era

Hello my friends.  It is with a broken heart that I write this blog post.  My wonderful Granny, Kitty, passed away last night.  She fought the good fight and is now resting in the arms of Jesus. 

This is very hard for me to write.  As I sit here, tears streaming down my cheeks, I can see Granny's beautiful smile and hear her laugh.  She was the most wonderful Grandmother a girl could ask for.  She had a personality that outshined most people's. She would bend over backwards to help people and always had a smile at the ready for someone.

Being raised by this wonderful woman has shaped me into the woman I am today.  She instilled in me values, morals and an understanding of the world.  She took me to church at 5 days old for the first time and never stopped taking me.  She raised me to view people with understanding, and to always give people the benefit of the doubt.

I will miss this woman more than words can say.  Even though my heart is broken and I will always miss her, it is a comfort to know that she is walking the streets of Heaven, fully whole physically.  My Grandfather and my Father met her at the Pearly Gates.  She is now happier than she has ever been in her life.  Jesus opened up His arms last night at 6:17 pm and welcomed her to her everlasting home. 

Until I see you again, Granny, know that I love you and will miss  you every day of my life.  Kierstynne will miss you too and she loves you.  You were an amazing woman!
