    Keely, I am sorry to hear about your grandmother. I was very close to my maternal grandmother, so when I lost her at age 11, it was devastating. I know how close you can get to grandparents. They sometimes are your next best friend. I hope she didn’t suffer and was ready to meet the Lord.
    I will keep you in my prayers,
    PS I have missed you. It’s been a long time!.
