She was always a great grandma and a great mother. She has many friends and family that love and know her, she will surely be missed. She was one of the most wonderful god-loving persons on the planet, if you ever needed anything she was always there to help. She loved the Lord and served him to the best of her abilities. She is now with the Lord and heaven has gained one amazing angel. May the Lord bless her and her entire family.

My grandma’s house is a treasure chest
Just like my grandma, it is the best.
You will find many things to explore
When I arrive there is always an open door.
And, lots of things to take apart
From kitchen cupboards to the old wooden cart.
A house filled with warmth, laughter, and love
Our family thinks our Grandma was sent from heaven above.
2 Timothy 1:5: Connections Through Faith
There aren’t many Bible verses that speak specifically to only grandmothers, but 2 Timothy 1:5 is one that does. The verse shares ” a faith that first dwelt in your grandmother,” and continues “I am sure dwells in you as well.” It connects grandchildren and grandparents through faith.
