Gramma, your golden heart stopped beating, your final breath taken. God knew you were tired, so he wrapped his arms around you and together you flew high above. You are no longer suffering and in pain, the look of peace on your face made me smile and tears began to flow. It was an honor and a blessing to have been here as you greeted our Lord with open arms as you began your journey into eternal life. We all love and miss you so much until we meet again. Lots of love, Nikki, Kylie and Bentlee.
