HEAVY HEARTS...

Tonight our hearts are heavy. We have lost a very dear woman. She was known as Grandma Dorothy to most of our hometown. She was such a wonderful woman and she will be so missed by everyone. We were able to see her Friday evening. She recognized Don by his voice right away and she knew the rest of us when she looked. She said how Randy has Don's smile and she called Em her baby girl. (She certainly was when she was little!) So today my children are sad...my husband is heartbroken...and I am just so thankful we were one of the ones she touched!
After we visited with her for a few minutes Fri we headed home and as we were eating dinner out Em started talking about her getting better. We then had to explain that she was not going to get better. Em cried as her brother held her.(It is so amazing to watch your children comfort each other!) We talked about how sometimes we want to be selfish and keep the ones we love here with us. But how she had lived such a long wonderful life and that her reward was waiting in Heaven. Then today at Church Em put in a prayer request that God would take her pain and not let her suffer. She past away about 1pm today. I know she is reunited with her family and friends in Heaven! SO...even though we are sad we are thankful that we had the chance to know her and be loved by her.

Blessings~
Tina

Hubbard family -- I'm so sorry for your loss, and what seems like an entire community's loss. I'm sure Grandma Dorothy's life was richer for knowing your family, and your family was richer for knowing Grandma Dorothy.
Big hugs and blessings to you all!
