gramma update

if you have been following mine or my sister's blog for some time, you will remember posts we have written about our grandmother. she has been battling cancer for several years now and was told on Friday, June 5, that she only had days to live. the following (last) week was awful - funeral plans, digging through old pictures, and mostly, caring for our poor grandmother who was in lots of pain and became immobile.

Saturday, June 13, our beautiful grandmother Betty Jane went to be with Jesus. we are happy she is no longer in pain, though sad because we miss her greatly. she was an amazing woman of God, and through her prayer and petition, helped lead my whole family to Christ. we will forever love her, think of her, and miss her, until we can see her again.










viewings are tomorrow (Tuesday) 2-5 and 7-9 at Dusckas Martin Funeral Home, 4216 Sterrettania Road, in Erie, PA. service is 10am on Wednesday at Grace Church. you can read her obituary here.

GoErie, nor Legacy retain this information long.
Cut and paste a copy for your family before it disappears (likely today).

I recommend you bookmark the Legacy Guest Book in your Favorites. Gramma is a click away in thoughts if you do. I did it for my mom last May 2008 and folks are still writing in.
(You have to make the Guest Book a permanent memorial for a fee). Given your talents for photos, add some there to be viewed forever.

I am sorry for your loss.
She has lost the battle of cancer, and won the battle of life.
God be with you.
