Our prayers and thanksgiving this Easter Vigil are dedicated in a special way to T's grandmother,
our GG Isabel.
On Tuesday, GG Isabel went home to be with the Lord.
As Aunt A wrote beautifully in memory of GG, "she will be remembered by many as a loyal friend, an avid bridge player, a dedicated member of her community, and a true embodiment of Christian love." Though we have lived far from GG for the past 7 years, she sent us a loving card at each holiday and never missed an opportunity to encourage us over the phone. T and I are both blessed with lifelong memories of her example as wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
This year, as we celebrate Christ's Resurrection, it will take on special meaning for us. GG is a powerful role model of faith in our lives. In faith and hope, we look forward to praising God by her side in heaven forever.
