Happy Anniversay, Packers!

My great-grandmother, Posey, passed away this morning. She has been bravely battling bone cancer since February, and has been in a rehab facility for some time. What is so amazing about her dying today is that it is her 67th Wedding Anniversary. What a way to celebrate...with her husband in Heaven! I am not trying to make this a light subject, but I know that she is laughing and smiling again with our Lord, and Mr. Cliff! Please keep my grandmother, Trena, in your prayers today. It is her mother, and death, even when expected, always catches you by surprise.
Sing the wondrous love of Jesus, Sing His mercy and His grace. In the mansions bright and bless├Ęd He’ll prepare for us a place.

When we all get to Heaven, What a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, We’ll sing and shout the victory!

While we walk the pilgrim pathway, Clouds will overspread the sky; But when traveling days are over, Not a shadow, not a sigh.

Let us then be true and faithful, Trusting, serving every day; Just one glimpse of Him in glory Will the toils of life repay.

Onward to the prize before us! Soon His beauty we’ll behold; Soon the pearly gates will open; We shall tread the streets of gold.

I'm sorry, Boo Boo. I'll be thinking about you and your family.

Sorry to hear about your great-grandma, but it really is amazing that it was on her anniversary. Sort of a real life "The Notebook."

I'm so sorry to hear that. Yesterday would have been my grandmother's 90th birthday had she not passed away last Tuesday. But isn't it great that we can know that they are with the Lord and with loved ones and are happier than they have ever been!

I'm so sorry to hear that! But even still, it is romantic to get to spend her anniversary with her husband and knowing that she's in heaven, makes it all better! Let me know if you or your family need anything at all!! Love!!!

I heard about sweet Posey. What a day to go home! I think it's great for her. Hard for Trina. :(

Love you!
