Saying good-bye.....

This past weekend I made a whirlwind trip to Ft.Worth to say good-bye to my Grandmother who died last Tuesday. On New Years Eve Day she suffered a massive stroke and was not found for 12 hours. The neurologist told my family that she had no brain activity in 2/3 of her brain and there was no chance for recovery. So last Tuesday they made the decision to pull out her breathing tube and she passed away 4 hous later.

My brother and I flew in on Thursday and spent 3 hard but sweet days with my family. Upon hearing the news I felt strongly that I needed to give the eulogy, which I did. It was very hard, but I managed through it.

My grandmothers name was Velma Helen Miers and she was 81 years old. She loved quiltmaking, crossword puzzles and the Cowboys football team. But most of all she loved Jesus and her family.

You can view her obituary here.

proud of you, friend!
I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm glad that you could be with your family!
