In Loving Memory

Mary Frances Lee

September 26, 1920 - March 29, 2011

My sweet grandmother, Mary Frances passed away yesterday morning. While I'm not too sure of what I want to write about her (just yet); I found a significant amount of comfort today while praying.

My grandmother lived a long life, and was 90 years old upon her passing. She was a fun spirited woman, and truly an inspiration to all of the lives she touched.

I am so incredibly thankful to know that she is in heaven. She is perfect - truly in her soul, body, and mind. She is renewed - no longer sick, or tired. What an amazing gift from the Lord! Life here is just temporary, and our true reward waits for us in heaven, alongside God. There is nothing more comforting to me right now, than knowing this truth. How can I not be happy for her? Praise God!

"Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand."

Psalm 16:9-11

I am glad you got to spend as much time with her as you did. You are right, she is in a happier and more loving place. My thoughts are with you.

Oh Jen, I am sitting here in tears. My heart aches for you. I was just crying earlier today thinking of my pawpaw as I dusted his picture :( He was only 67. Your grandmother lived a very full life, that is awesome!! So glad that you had her for so many years.

Prayers to you and your family sweetie.

When you get a min. would you please send me your mailing address?

His Love and Mine,
Daph
