Its been 5 years now…5 years ago today my grandma’s brain was starved of oxygen and with that, she left us. Feb 17th she physically died…

She was eating chicken when it appeared that a piece of chicken had blocked her airways. She lost conscience and never regained conscience again. Months later it was found out that it was actually her heart that caused the choking (there is a name for it, her dad had the same thing).

My oldest 2 were at youth group, my younger 2 at home, and I was at the nail salon…

All of us, her kids, her grand-kids and even great grand-kids will tell you she actually left us Feb 14th to be with Jesus and her husband. They were the loves she always talked about. For years she talked about going home to Jesus. Her service, she planned out and her message was clear but not overbearing. Jesus is the only way. A few funeral services later, and none compare to hers and her clear message.

We have no doubt she was welcomed by Jesus. She had such a deep faith in Jesus. Something I wish I would have actually talked to her about. There is no doubt she was also reunited with Papaw (her love, husband), Jackie (a son she lost shortly after birth), the twins she miscarried, Misty (Granddaughter), and Shelley (Great-Granddaughter)…Not to mention her brother, father….

Such a Bittersweet day…
