This morning Jody's sister called and told us that Jody's grandmother passed away.
We were very sad to hear it. Grandmother was a very special lady! She was 95 years old and I'm SURE if she could have told us, she would have assured us she was ready to be with Jesus. She loved Jesus more than just about anyone I have ever known. She was so kind and proper. (Hence the fact that she was called Grandmother). When Jody was younger and his mom was working, Grandmother would pick Jody up from the bus stop and take him home. They would play and play. She would make dinner for the family. She loved serving them.
Then, the same year I started dating Jody, Grandmother moved in with Jody's parents. She didn't drive anymore and just needed to have help close by. As the years progressed, Jody's mom faithfully cared for Grandmother. Grandmother was SO grateful. Jody remained close to her all these years. She was SO proud that he was a minister, like her husband!!
Then last year, when Jody's mom fractured her back, they had to put Grandmother in the nursing home. It was a hard decision, but one that had to be made. Grandmother was requiring 24 hour care. She died in the nursing home early this morning. Jody's mom had visited with her just yesterday.
Jody left with Hattie this morning to be with the family in Georgia. I can't travel, so I stayed with the boys. We are sleeping at my parents house, just in case! But I am really hoping and praying labor DOESN'T start while Jody is gone. The funeral is on Sunday.
