Grandma

My dear, sweet Grandma Ruth passed into the presence of the Lord on Sunday night. I already miss her so much, but at the same time, it doesn't even seem like she's gone to me yet. It will probably all sink in when I go down to her funeral this Sunday, go to her empty house and bury her ashes next to Grandpa's. She was such a sweet, caring woman, and I treasure all of the memories I have of her. She and my Grandpa are leaving such a beautiful legacy behind them of people who know, love, and serve the Lord because of their great faith in Him. I'm so grateful for that heritage that I can pass onto my children someday.
