“Gone to a Better Place”


Description from Granny Nancy: My hubby of 53 years passed on to a better place Sunday morning. It was sudden and an end to all his suffering. He'd been sick for a long time. The hearts represent my sons and I and our love for him. The Cross represents his faith in God. The angels are symbolic of his transport to Heaven and the "Believe" charm represents the belief of our Lord's saving grace. I chose the rest to represent the purity of the perfectness of God and the next life.

    I am so sorry for your loss. l can’t imagine what its like to lose your husband. I am sure your heart hurts but am glad that you can find comfort in God. I don’t know how people survive hard times without the Lord. You’ll be in my prayers. Do you have a church family? Your LB family is here too!

    Dear Robin… yes I have a wonderful church family. The Celebration Service will be Sunday afternoon there preceded by a luncheon by the ladies of the church. The pastor is awesome. Plus my son and his wife have just taken over so much for me and others have brought food of course. I thank you for your prayers. I love it here at L.B. Its so relaxing to come and enjoy others creations and then as I’m inclined to create something of my own. Thank you so much for your concern and prayers. I haven’t figured out yet how to use the normal method of communication.

    Dear Granny,
    Remember always:

    The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want…
    Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will not fear …
    You prepare a table for me… my cup runneth over…
    Goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

    You and your family are in my prayers.

    Granny, your faith is very evident in your words about your pick. I like how you call it the Celebration Service. We should celebrate when a dear one passes into our Savior’s arms. My sympathy on your loss but it will be tempered knowing you will one day join him.

    Thank you all so much. As I sit here in tears having just come home from being taken out to dinner, it hits me that I’ll always come home alone like this. So I went to L.B. and was so delighted to see so many wonderful responses to my creation. You lightened my somber mood so much. I appreciate your words and obvious caring. God Bless You All!
