I'm going to be grieving for a bit. One of Nana Sadie's "Roses," my aunt, died this morning at 6 a.m. She was at home, surrounded by the people and the things she loved. We can all only pray that our lives end in such a manner.
I am grateful for her life, for her influence on me, for her love. I am grateful she is no longer in pain.
I will miss her, far more than she could have known. I pray she'll now join her parents, brothers, and sisters (those who have preceeded her in death), in watching out for all of us, to the extent that they can.
I am praying for her husband, daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. I want them to know they are loved by those of us left behind.
