We lost a dear and sweet lady yesterday. Terry's Mom, Betty, just couldn't fight the infection any longer; that had put her in the hospital last Monday. The physicians told Terry and his siblings that she probably wouldn't last through the day, on Wednesday. She proved them wrong on Wednesday, but then she was not responsive at all on Thursday. She was the best Mother-in-Law a gal could wish for, a wonderful Mom of three, and a fantastic Grandma! She adored spending time with Nathan and Patrick SO much.
Monday afternoons were Grandma date day. Each Monday afternoon, after school, Terry and the boys went over for lunch and spend time with Grandma. They'd bake cookies, play outside, or just sit and color with Grandma. The boys would make an absolute mess, when they baked, but she didn't care . . . they all were having fun! :o) At 88 years young, she outlived two husbands, still lived alone, drove herself everywhere, and made the most delicious meals when we'd come over for dinner!
I've been asked to get a PowerPoint presentation together, with pictures throughout her life. It's so heartwarming to look through all these pictures and see what a wonderful life she'd had, as I'm tearing up just talking about it. We have services and such on Tuesday morning . . . so it'll probably be awhile before I post again. I just wanted to let my 'lil blog friends know what is going on. Thank you again for the thoughts and prayers, this past week!
Thanks for stopping by my craft room! Have a wonderful Easter!
