“Nana's Passing”

Description from CAS: My very much beloved Nana (maternal Grandmother) passed away quietly at home on Saturday, March 16th, 2013 surrounded by family. She was briefly hospitalized, and the doctors determined that nothing more could be done for her. She came home on Thursday, March 14th on Hospice, and passed just after midnight on the 16th. She was comfortable, in no pain, and her son, my uncle Jim, had arrived from California on the 15th. My sister, Cindy, and my nephew, Victor (Nana's favorite Great-Grandson), also had arrived from Pennsylvania on Friday, and we were all in the room with her at the end.

I designed this pick for her because she'd been waiting for May, when her flowers would be in bloom. She loved gardens.

    Christine, I am so sorry for your loss. Wishing you peace of heart and comfort in this time of sorrow.
    I think maybe your Grandmother has her flowers growing all around her. Now she’ll always have them and won’t ever have to wait for May.
    You are in my prayers. *Hugs*
