Thoughts and Ideals


Life
This morning is a sad one for me. My Grandma Willis, a woman full of love and giving, and with the world's most beautiful smile, passed away around 6AM while in the company of my mom (her daughter) and uncle. She passed peacefully and quietly, but I will miss her more than I can express.

I know many of you my friends aren't religious, but I found these lines from my Grandma's last Christmas letter to be most comforting:

'I wish to leave you with these versus from God's word:

John 14:1-3, 6 "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also. ... Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh to the Father, but by me."

If I don't see you again, I pray that I'll meet you in heaven where I'll be and you can be too if you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart!'


Her love and smile brightened every room she visited; now the angels will have to vie with her as her face joins their choir in eternity.

If you would, just pray for me, my family and her friends during this time, but rejoice for her.

It's a sad thing when someone you hold dear passes away.
I recently got the news that my grandfather dosn't have a long time left.
But instead of thinking about it, I focus on the positive things.

I'm sorry I've let this comment sit for so long. Thank you for your heartfelt words, and I am glad that you have found strength in focusing on the positive as you face your grandfather's impending passing. I hope (and pray) that the good memories and happy thoughts will carry you past the difficult times ahead. It isn't easy, never is, but it's survivable. Take care, friend!

Iknow how you feel, man. My Grandpa up in NY passed away night before last. It's never easy to lose a loved one, and I wish you, your family, and everyone her kindness affected my sympathy and understanding. I'm not religious, so I can't promise to pray for you, but I'm under the firm belief that people live on in the deeds they've done and the people who love them, and by the sound of it your grandmother will be living for a very long time in the hearts of many people. ^.^
