Into each life a little rain must fall....

......feels like a downpour.
Our beloved Gram is slipping away....She's almost 103 years old. 
Each day now might be her last.  As we all keep vigil at her bedside,  precious memories are recalled, family rifts have been healed. 
She is loved by many.  She is a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother, a great-great grandmother.  But mostly, she is a Christian, who's life has been an influence on all of us.
We just love her now.
She is not dying of an illness, she has NEVER been on any medication.  She is passing only from old age.
Don't be sad for Gram though, she will soon be with her Heavenly Father in a far better place than we can imagine and there will be a reunion of loved ones passed.

I love you Gram, Now go get your wings, you deserve the largest pair ever.......................................

Maureen, It is a blessing for all of us to have known someone like her. It nice she has lived a very long and healthy life. My husband grandmother died last February at the age of 103. She lived on her own, was still putting up preserves and taking care of herself. They touch a lot of lives, they will always be missed but a little piece of them will always live on in the little things that remind us of them. Want to wish a very warm blessings to you and your family. Vicky
