    So sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. With such a big family I know she will be dearly missed. When we lose our grandparents it’s like losing some of our family history. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers as you all grieve for your loved one. During times like this I have always found comfort knowing that Jehovah God cares for us 2Corinthians 1:3,4 and in Jesus words about death at John 5:28,29 bible texts that I know you know well. We miss you all and hope to see you soon.
