My great-grandmother passed away in her sleep Monday night. She was 101 years of age and a devout and zealous Christian throughout her life and I know I will see her again someday. Her funeral has yet to be dated but I expect it will be sometime next week; as such I might not be online much that week. I hope some of you will join me in praying in thanks for her life and love. Amen.

Shamus, I'm sorry for your loss.

I'll remember her in my prayers.

Shamus, you were very fortunate to have her so long. All my grandparents were gone before I was 3 years old.

My condolences.

Sorry for your loss Shamus. I know you have many fond memories. Only a few 10s of thousands of all the earths humans attain that age.

Shamus, My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

My Grandma died 2 yrs ago at the ripe young age of 100 yrs young, 3 weeks before she past, she asked me to put on some dancing music so "we can boogie" of course I obliged, until she wanted to do the Chidder Bug, I knew I could not pick her up and throw her across my back and go on.. She was a big women...

My heart is with you as well as my prayers.

Sorry for the lose. Its always said when we loose someone we love but the greatest thing of all was that she was a devote Christian. You can be at rest knowing that she is in the comfort of Abraham's Bosom, awaiting that wonderful day of judgment were she will hear, "Well done thy good and faithful servant, enter into the joys of Heaven!"

My prayers will be with you and your family.
