She's still my Granny....

Not everyone has a Granny, and for that, we've all been blessed.

We will miss you, Granny. Oh, we will miss you

But I see you in my Daddy.

And in Grandad's love for you.

And I even see you in Alyssa's wildness.

I see you in Mandy's kindness.

I see you every single time I look at my son.

And the rest of our beautiful, loving, almost numberless, crazy, hilarious family.

So, you see, really, you found a way to stay with us always.

And there you will stay forever,
Until we see you again.

Because you're still my Granny.

P.S. Save a place for me.

"When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"

  1. This is so beautiful and soooo true! What God allows us to receive of Him in our loved ones is not lost in death but lives on in us eternally to be passed on and on and on. when I look at you and Callie, I will also always see Granny. She taught us all soo much about real love - the unconditional kind that only Jesus gives. I'm so proud of the song and spirit you and Callie lifted up in Granny Marie's honor. I love you both so much! Mom
