Sweet Grandma,

I have noticed these past few days that the sun doesn’t shine quite as brightly as it did before you left this side of the Veil; though I know that the Kingdom shines ever brighter, now that you are Home. It is only by His grace that I can bear your being gone.
Until I see you again;
I love you,

Shanan

The thing about Aunt Janet was that she was always smiling and her eyes sparkled. Husband Tom and I went to Florida when he got out of the Army and he got to meet all my aunts, uncles, and cousins. It was such a privilege for us to see Aunt Janet's sweet smile and to be with her and Uncle Fitz (and Pam and Sheri and Kim). Aunt Janet's faith, strong like my mother's, carried her through life beautifully, with love.

My Aunt Janet,

For as much time as our family spent in the West I have some dear memories of long ago. From the times we visited in Tampa when I was 5 or 6 to the time I was in Montgomery on my own when I was 20, you have always been the same kind of practicality and kindness as my mother, your sister Margaret. With, believe it or not, the same kind of strong faith. I’m so glad we got to see you in 2012,and that you got to meet my dear husband, David.

Say hello to Mama and Daddy for me. I love you.

Your Candy

Mother,
When I was 12 years old, you went to the altar at the front of the church. This scared me because at the time I knew nothing about an altar and I thought you must be very sick. But that was the beginning for you and your 3 girls and a new journey for us all. It was a journey that was sometimes scary because God likes to keep things interesting. But from that trip to the altar I eventually learned that this very big God loved and accepted me. He was gracious and showed me that unconditional love was really just that. And Jesus wasn't just the man in the movie at Easter time. Salvation didn't seem weird anymore. I could take the journey of life and not worry about perfection. I could just be me and He would do the rest.

But now you have gone to Him, face to face. You are with your parents and daddy. By now Scott has already made you laugh. But it really all started with a very small First Church of God on Narrow Lane Road and you took that first step forward and now you are home. Whether you knew it or not, you ended up living your life well. A servant who is now before the King. Thank you for the courage of that first step. Thank you for the example. Make room for me because one day I will be sitting at the table too.

With love,
Kim
