Goodbye


People / Friday, November 9th, 2012

She stood 4’ 8” tall, a giant.

Early this morning she died humbly as she lived, a hero.

Christmas 2009

I feel small and lost.

Goodbye, tiny grandma.

Shari, I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know your grandmother well; however, while I lived in Hartville I heard remnents of stories telling of the positive impact your paternal grandparents had on Hartville Christian School where I taught. Please give your family my condolences as well.

Oh, Shari, I’m so sorry to hear about this. Sadly, I’ve found that whether we’re expecting it or not, it’s still difficult. I’m SO happy to hear what a wonderful person she was – that means your memories will be happy ones and not ones filled with regret. God bless ~

What an adorable woman!!! And since I think you favor your dad’s side…maybe this is a peek of what you’ll look like in 60 years!!!

I’m so sorry. . . . I have lost two of my Grandmas (one a “great”) and I know the large hole their passing has left in my life, and still does many years later. I pray for God’s comfort for your entire family . . .

I was so sorry to hear she had died. May God comfort you. I agree with Shaunda; she is beautiful!

Hi Shari! I have been a ‘silent reader’ way too long…. I have cried as God touched my heart through you sharing your wrestlings. I have felt ministered to and convicted. I have laughed with you… you still have that cool, creative way of expressing yourself. 🙂 The same Shari, but different! A grace-filled woman.

Mom and Dad said they met up with you at the viewing of tiny grandma. Made me miss you all the more and wish I could connect with you again. We keep dreaming about making a weekend visit out to PA to see Jas’ brother Gerald and Grace. Meet up with you then?

I wanted to tell you how sorry I am about the loss of your grandma. I pray that you would know God’s presence and the care of people as you say good-by. It’s just never easy.

Thanks for writing and blessing me and others. I eagerly look forward to every update. 🙂
