Today has been a very melancholy day - I got a phone call this morning from my mom telling me that Grandma had passed away. She has wanted to leave this earth for quite some time. I can only imagine the joyous reunion she has had:) What a blessing this lady has been in my life. As a child I had the privilege of her living close by. She was my school teacher in the 1st grade and then again in the 3rd grade, she was a loving teacher. I have so many fond memories, too many to name. She taught by example and is truly a virtuous woman. I long to be like her, I have never met anyone so forgiving. She has lived a beautiful life. There is a scripture in D&C 25:2-3 that reminds me of her, although it is talking about Emma, I feel that I can replace my grandma's name with hers. It reads... and if thou art faithful and walk in the paths of virtue before me, I will preserve thy life, and thou salt receive an inheritance in Zion. Behold, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou art and elect lady whom I have called.
My grandma is my "elect" lady, her life was definitely preserved, 96 years old is not to shabby. I will be forever grateful for the legacy she has left behind. I thank her for raising such an amazing son who I love and adore. My cup runneth over!!!!!
I LOVE YOU SWEET GRANDMA!!!
