I'm just checking in to ask for prayers for my family... After a long - but courageous and graceful - battle with lung cancer, my Granny passed away this afternoon. Jeff and I were able to get back in town in plenty of time to be with her and say our goodbyes, and she was surrounded by her whole family at home when she died. I'm thankful that she did not suffer long --- as her health declined rapidly just over the past few days. Really, we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and beautiful day of being together and remembering. Granny always had a positive spirit, and I know she wouldn't want us to be so sad.
