Loved So Much

My MIL passed away Wednesday morning after a courageous battle. It was her time but that does not make it any easier on the ones left behind. She was the proud GG to 6 Great Grandchildren ranging in age from 11 to 3yrs. One of them asked if they could copy there hand print on to the coffin. (yes the coffin was closed)So there they were all lined up waiting to have there little hand prints traced onto the coffin with permanent marker. Each wrote there own name in the center. The youngest was quick to remind us she was to young to do that..lol. What a sweet time that was. Lots of tears and memories shared during the private family service. It will take us time to deal with our loss but that is ok..at least we know she is at peace.
