Goodbye Grandma


Friday I wrote about beyond. Beyond death, heaven’s wonders beyond our human comprehension; then I shared that Grandma had went home to Glory. She’s with her precious Jesus and also reunited with Grandpa.

This morning we buried her with a simple graveside ceremony. I found it hard. I was blessed to have a close relationship with my grandmother.  But it would be so much harder if I didn’t know she was in heaven now.

The way to heaven is a simple one and available to all. It is one of the greatest gifts; both to receive and then to share.  Why not share it with someone today for now is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2).

This afternoon is a short memorial service for her. Gran always loved beautiful shoes. In memory of her, I bought a new pair. {I like shoes too!}. I’ll be wearing these purple beauties in memory of her. I love them and I know she would have too!

Purple Shoes


  1. This is all too familiar, as we just buried my Grandpa on Saturday. Praise God for saints called home. My Hubby’s Mema passed away in Febuary, and she too loved shoes. I got a pair of hers that look just like your blue ones, but they are red. Good memories. 🙂

  2. Just wanted to give you hugs. Even when we know there is a Heaven, and that we can one day see our loved ones again, it doesn’t make their passing over any easier.
    I think it’s really nice that you bought some shoes in memory of her.

  3. So sorry for the loss of your Grandma. I’m so thankful she’s at home with her husband and Savior. I love that you’re going to wear those beautiful shoes in memory of her!
