In the early afternoon of December 10th, my wife's grandmother died. It was not unexpected. She was 93, and outlived her husband of 70+ years by almost a year exactly. She had a good long life, leaving 4 children, 7 grandchildren and a whole bunch of great-grandchildren, including our two.
She loved to bake, making crazy good pecan pies, and she made quilts that all of her family members love to use, because they're soft and warm.
She was a good woman, and will be missed.
If anyone out there can spare a prayer for her and for her family, I'm sure it would be appreciated.
My wife and kids will attend the calling hours on Friday and the funeral in Saturday. I have been politely invited to stay home.
