Thank you Grandma for spoiling me when I was young,

For scolding me when I was dumb,

For being there for me when I was down,

For Supporting me when I needed it,

For being there for me always,

We’ll always remember you and you will never leave our hearts.

Rest in peace Grandma.

Letting Go

The angels gathered near your side so very

close to you

For they knew the pain and suffering that you were going through

I thought about so many things as I held tightly

to your hand

Oh, how I wished that you were strong and happy once again

But your eyes were

looking homeward to that place beyond the sky

Where Jesus held his outstretched arms it was time to say goodbye

I struggled with my

selfish thoughts for I wanted you to stay

So we could walk and talk again like

we did just yesterday

But Jesus knew the answer and I know you loved him so

So I gave to you life’s greatest gift

The gift of letting go


As per Mary’s wishes graveside services will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by Anderson Bethany Funeral Home and Crematory.
