Saying “See You Later” To Memaw Today

Hi dear friends and readers. My beautiful Memaw passed from this world into heaven on Saturday just after 6 p.m. We were with her and held her hands as she slipped away. It was a quiet, sacred, beautiful thing.

Today we are celebrating her life.

This is so, SO hard. I fell apart driving up the driveway on Sunday night and her house was completely dark. That lamplight that I’ve seen shine for the last 30 years was missing and it made me realize just how big the hole is in my heart.

Two days before she left us. Her hairdresser came to the house and fixed her hair.

Please pray for us.

I will be back here as soon as I can.

xoxo

Myra

    Praying for you and your family, Myra. Although the sadness and sorrow is here for those she left behind, there is great joy and peace in knowing that she is with Jesus now. May you and your sweet family find comfort and peace in that truth during this time.

    In His love,
    Jess

  5. I am so sorry, Myra! I will pray for you. Just got the news this morning that my grandmother went to be with the Lord this morning. I had 43 years with her but it still wasn’t enough. We are certainly programmed for eternity, aren’t we?

  6. Myra..hugs and prayers coming your way. May your memories and love for each other sustain you through this difficult journey. How wonderful it must have been for her to be at home surrounded by family and love when her soul went to heaven.

  7. I’ve been reading for quite some time but am not one to post often…today, I just wanted to say I’m praying for you.

  8. Oh, I can relate! My grandma passed away a couple years ago and it was such a tough loss. I still miss her. Thinking of you and your family!

  9. Praying this morning for you and for all who loved her. Hugs

  10. praying and thinking of you today as you celebrate the life you had with your Grandmother. I know sharing today the precious memories will be bittersweet, there will be tears but praying also for laughter and smiles as you remember her and the love she had for all of you.

  11. Praying for your family Myra – I am so glad you could be with her until her last moments here – I was there when my mom passed and there is no experience like it. {HUGS}

    Our love and prayers to your family, Myra. Praying for you now, that God will give you many windows and doors of opportunity through this.

  13. I was so sad for you when I read your post this morning. Your grama will hold such a special place in your heart forever. There is no filling that void, the ‘missing you’ part, forever. In a family so close you will speak of this special person in your life, all your life, sharing the stories of love, friendship, caring, and doing, as your grama did for so many. Stay close in the days ahead and we will welcome you back with open arms when you are ready to return.

    She looks beautiful.

    Dear Lord comfort the broke hearted for they shall be comforted. By You this very hour. What a sad time so will you bless and hold this dear granddaughter? Oh how we love You Lord
    Amen

  15. Praying and hoping I can leave a legacy for my grands!

  16. I am so sorry to read of your great loss, Myra. Please know that you are in my heart and prayers.

    So, so sorry for your loss. It will take time but each day will get a little easier.

    I recently lost my beloved dog of 15+ years and have found SARK’s “Glad No Matter What: Transforming Loss + Change Into Gift + Opportunity” so helpful. When you’re ready…maybe you’d like it, too.

  24. Myra, so sorry for your big loss. No matter how old your mom gets it is still such a painful thing when she passes.

    God Bless you and your family. God will abide with you and rest his head on your shoulder while you need deep comfort.

    Blessings

    Dear Myra, Many of your friends and readers have left beautiful, comforting messages for you and I would echo all of them. There is something especially hard about losing that last grandparent….It’s as if a door closes on a generation and we move a step farther from our own childhood. I was nearly 50 years old when my last grandparent passed away and found it to be a deeply wrenching experience. I’ve been praying for you and will continue to do so. Fondly, Suzanne

  26. You and your family will be in my prayers. I just lost my grandmother this year as well, and I know it is so difficult. We can be comforted to know that they are no longer in pain and are with the Lord. I still miss her every day, as I know you will as well, but I rejoice to think of what they are experiencing now!

  27. grandparents are such special, warm people; none of mine are living on earth, but i look forward to the day that they will welcome me to heaven along w/ our Saviour! praying for comfort, strength, & healing as you grieve the loss of your dear grandmother.

  28. Estelle says:

    Dear, dear Myra,

    I know no words ever will wipe away the pain,
    But the deep and precious Love your family is
    Sharing will probably soothe it a little bit…
    Your sweet Memaw is in Heaven now and is
    Surely so proud of you all, looking forward for
    The day you will all be together again…
    Keeping you in my prayers…

  29. I am very sorry for your loss. Praying for comfort and strength for you and yours.
