The Day the Heaven's Shone

It has been cloudy and overcast for days, but today, Friday, February 17th the sun is shining brightly.  Heaven is rejoicing for today it has a new angel, our beloved Grandma Pam.

We celebrate that her suffering and pain has come to an end, but we grieve for the wonderful step-mom, mother-in-law, and grandma that she was.  From the moment I met her she dotted upon our little family.  Showering us with praise, encouragement, gifts, surprises, love.    She was considerate, loving, funny, strong willed, faithful, warm and one of the kindest people I have met.  You walked into her home and she pampered you, she was a beautiful hostess.  On birthdays and holidays she would call with requests from the kids, she was always thinking of what they enjoyed and what would make them happy.  Whether it was teaching them how to play golf in the backyard, treating them to a day at Chuck-e-Cheese, cuddling up on the couch watching a movie, showering them with love and treats, and making sure that they had warm soft blankets to sleep in,  she won their hearts immediately.

She won all of our hearts and today our hearts are breaking.  We are grateful for the knowledge and faith that we will see our sweet grandma again.
