As a 10 year old, I panicked of losing my Granny, " GOD please don't take her from me", I pleaded & begged ( i thought she was so old @ 50 something) Granny calmed my fearful heart by reassuring me that GOD wasnt taking her yet & that she would be here on this earth around us for a long, long time. GOD allowed Granny to keep her promise to that kid back then & now to a grown up by staying with us in our hearts. Absent from the body so as to be Present at Home with the Lord. Gone but not forgotten... PEACE, Joyce
