This will be the worst day of the year for my family. We lost my grandmother Mary today.
This morning Mary brightened Heaven while leaving a hole here on Earth. She passed away peacefully at home with my grandfather nearby and my mom by her side at 5:20 am. Mary’s battle with cancer lasted almost 30 years, and she fought with courage, strength, style, and grace. Our family is thankful that we had Mary as long as we did, yet her absence is already profound and painful. We rejoice that she is now with the Lord and the many love ones that preceded her in death.
