Saturday began with a hearty breakfast. I stacked the frozen blueberries in my cream cheese bagels. Thank you, Beloved.
I needed it to get me through the day.
The funeral brought bittersweet closure.
We sang old hymns from the songbook and there was a beautiful slideshow.
When the preacher came to speak, It was brought to memory what my Grandmother’s last words were.
“I love you.”
Looking back, it indeed was her last words.
She died as she lived, strong in spirit and full of God’s love.
The service closed with a parting song,
Sometimes we laugh together
Sometimes we cry
Sometimes we share together
Heartaches and sighs
Sometimes we dream together
Of how it will be
When we all get to heaven
Serving as a pallbearer, I gave my final goodbye. I will see her again on the other side, but it was hard.
Today would have been her 90th birthday party and we elected to have a get together in her honor.
The tables were decorated with her teapot collection.
Songs were sung and we had a beautiful luncheon.
I will miss you Grandmother. Your hugs were the best.

Sad to hear about your grandmother. I am sure she will definitely be watching you from heaven and would have loved to see how you celebrated her 90th birthday and how much you miss her.
Thank you Shruti Dubey! I loved her very much!
She looks so full of personality in all your pics! The teapot collection is nice.
I’m happy that you celebrated her birthday. I hope it allowed you to focus on good memories.
She was full to the brim with personality! That was a small portion of her collection. She was big on drinking tea! Thank you for stopping by!
So sorry to hear this, I hope you are ok.
