My 106 year old Great Grandma passed away Sunday night. She was born in 1899!!!! This picture was taken on her 106th birthday. Her funeral will be held Thursday. I just know she is so happy to have left that old wore out body behind. She is with the Lord and our loved ones that have gone before her. I am so thankful that, because of Jesus, we have an eternal hope.
My dad stopped by to visit Monday morning. We were visiting and he asked about Grandma Pearl. As we were talking about her, my mom called to pass on the news of her death. When I told my dad about it, he looked a little startled. He shared with me that the reason he had asked about her was because he had dreamed the previous night that she had passed away. This was the same night that she had died. Very odd.
I had a good visit with my dad. He usually stays for the day when he stops by. Sometimes, he calls into work and comes to visit. I really enjoy the company. He always buys Pizza Hut pizza so that he can have a pizza party with Elaina. It’s cute watching them sit on the floor together and eat pizza and watch tv or play video games. They banter back and forth with each other!
Daddy went on and on about what a good person Grandma Pearl was. He said he can’t think of one negative thing to say about her, which is a big deal for my dad!!
