It's sad cause we will miss her, but we are comforted because we know she is smiling and dancing in heaven right now. And she had a long life with many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was truly blessed and we were blessed to have her for as long as we did.
Oh, DonnaMaria, I know you'll miss her! She sounds just like our "Nellie" who passed on two years this coming August--she was 93. I still get the urge to "call" her to talk and then realize I can't. But, like you, I'm comforted knowing she's in a better place...
"smiling and dancing in heaven"
Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are a God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You. (Psalm 25: 4-5)
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
