My grandma passed away a few weeks ago, she was 96 years old… this Sunday (the 22nd) would have been her birthday. I visited my grandma at the end of June and it was heartbreaking to leave her. A week after I left she had a stroke and was unable to speak, a few days after her stroke her speech was limited but she was able to pray the rosary with family. My grandma always had a rosary with her and as a child when I stayed the night with her we would pray the rosary in Spanish. I miss my grandma terribly but I know that she is now out of pain and in a better place.

God’s Garden
God looked around his garden and found an empty place, he then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain, he knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb. So he chose your weary eyelids and whisperd “peace bethine”. It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone for part of us went with you the day God called you home.
