Country Roads Take Me Home…

28 Sep

Sadly though, they will not be taking us home for a fun family visit.  They’ll be taking us home for a funeral.  Andrew’s grandma passed away yesterday.  She was 89 years old and had been suffering with her health for awhile now.  We were hoping to get to go see her next weekend but God wanted to see her first.  She really needed to be at peace and without pain and now she is.  It’s just so sad to know she’s gone.

I did get to talk to her on the phone the day before she died.  She got to hear Nia and Nate’s voices and I know that made her happy.  I heard her try to say “Oh, the baby” when Nate talked to her.  She would call Nate, “Cloney” because – although she couldn’t see – she knew he looked just like Andrew.  She loved her smallest family members so very much.  I think she felt good knowing she was leaving such beautiful pieces of her behind.  If it wasn’t for her, our family wouldn’t be here today.

She was the feistiest little Italian lady. She would tell you like it is (sometimes very bluntly and humorously) and I can only hope to live a life as full and blessed as hers.

She will always be in our hearts.

    Thank you for writing such nice things about Grandma. I want to write something myself but I am still very sad she is gone. I will miss her very much.
