St. Patrick's Day

Nana (my MIL) had six brothers and sisters. Her youngest brother was the first to pass away, on St Patrick's Day, 1975. Over the next 33 years all her other siblings passed away one by one, until for the last several years she has been the only surviving sibling. Early in the morning on this St Patrick's Day, Nana went peacefully to join her family.

One wonders what the heavenly St Patrick's Day parade must be like.

Thank you all for all the support you sent our way while she was ill and in the hospital and the care center. May you all be blessed for it.

I'm sorry for your loss. Nana was clearly well loved and blessed with a loving supportive family.

Cyber hugs, dear one.

I'm thankful that Nana went in peace which is a gift from the King of Peace.

We will continue to pray for comfort.

As they say in the Salvation Army, Nana has been, "promoted to Glory." Strength and comfort to you as you deal with all the follow-up details and empty space she leaves in your life. You are in my prayers.
