Pentecost

Grandma died at a little after seven this morning.  She’d been at the hospice house for the last several days, and they took great care of her, but in the end cancer is just an evil beast. 

It’s a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning, and my cousins (her other two granddaughters) are being confirmed today, and it’s Pentecost.  And Grandma gets to spend the morning out of pain and in the presence of her Lord.  All things considered, it’s a good day.  I wish we were in church this morning, too, but the girls decided that they desperately needed to nap.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I rejoice that Mom is with her Lord but that joy lives side by side with the sorrow of her death. I will pray comfort and peace for you and your family today and in the weeks and months to come.

    I was confirmed on Pentecost 37 years ago. Neat time for the family.

    Be with your folks as much as you can-I know you need to work but shared grief is so much lighter.

    I am sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is never easy, but knowing they are out of pain hopefully helps to ease the pain a little. Just know that she will always be looking over you and your two beautiful littel ones

    I’m so sorry to hear this. I was lucky to have my last grandmother until my girls were about 2, but her last few years weren’t good ones. I’m sorry for you and your family but happy your grandmother’s suffering is over.

    Oh I’m so sorry to read this Kate… It was so hard for me to lose my grandmothers, especially my maternal one… but I really do feel even now, years later, like she is always with me. It’s like they give you the purest love, so it stays with you forever…
