Rest in peace, Meemaw

My grandma went to Heaven early this morning.  She was ready to go.  And her passing was a peaceful one.  That gives me great peace.

Our awesome priest came to see Meemaw in between services Sunday morning. He prayed over her and performed the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.  I am grateful for that.

I am happy that she is reunited with her husband (my Poppy), her mom and dad, and her brothers.  As well as with my brother, Collin.   And I love that she's meeting Jesus.  I hope they're all having a wonderful party!

And I am so thankful to have had my grandma for all 29 years, okay, 37 years of my life.  I know that many people don't have their grandparents that long.  Both of my grandparents passed away at the age of 87, far outliving the average life expectancy.  Another reason to say, "Thank You, God."

And thanks to all of you who have been praying for us.

Rest in peace, Meemaw.  We'll miss your sass and your pie crusts.  Thank you for calling me sweetheart.  I love you.

She did it her way.


  1. I'm sorry for your loss, Danielle. I'm praying for peace and comfort over your entire family as you miss your Meemaw.

  2. She will be missed. I am so thankful that my kids were blessed to have gotten to meet her. Memaw was something else all 87 yrs....she is with Poppy so while she will be missed it brings me such great peace that sue is with him. Right where she belongs. I know he has been waiting for her!!!

  3. Danielle,
    I'm sure your Meemaw appreciates that even in this sad post, you've kept your humorous -- which I'm sure is genetically owed to her (:

    I love to think of people meeting Jesus for the first time. If you haven't heard the Mercy Me song "I Can Only Imagine", you might like it at this time.


  4. I'm so sorry for you loss. There isn't anything that will fill the hole in your heart that her passing has caused, but it is so wonderful that you have a lifetime of sweet memories to help with the pain. I'll be praying for your comfort and peace. {{{huggsss}}}}

  5. I am so sorry for the loss of your grandmother. She is probably sharing that sass with the rest of her loved ones waiting for her in heaven! I am sure she will be watching over you.
