Granna's Passing

For those of you who don't know, Braden's Granna passed away in her sleep early this morning. She had just turned 89 on Wednesday. We were there last night, and it was obvious that she was close to the end. This has been a long time coming, since she had a stroke in early February and probably had several more over the months. Those of us who knew and loved her were saddened to see her suddenly go from a vibrant, intelligent, independent woman to a shell of her former self. I can honestly say that while we will miss her very much, we are glad that she is in a better place, free of pain and suffering. She is now with her husband, who passed away over a decade ago, and we are thrilled that they are together. While we were there last night, I whispered to her to watch over her namesake from above, and I know she heard and understood, because her breathing got faster. Jenna can never go wrong in this life if she follows the example of her Granna, who taught everyone around her about Christ-like service and charity.

We love and miss you, Granna.
