Mamaw's Funeral

Mamaw's funeral was yesterday at the FBC in Paris. Our pastor pointed out that she was a Proverb's 31 woman and she truly was in every way.
Her name is Grace Catherine Rogers. The pastor called her Amazing Grace (which she was). Cousins Kristy and Bill sang Amazing Grace during the ceremony, and then it was played on bagpipes at the cemetary.
Guess what song they sang in church this morning. I had to leave church for a few minutes to quit crying. Lex was on security duty and he loved on me while I cried. I've been crying off and on through out the day. It was a lot easier when the extended family was all together. We told stories and made each other laugh.
I know I'll see her again, but right now I miss her so much I can hardly stand it. I wish I could be mad at her, for up and dying on us, but no one can be mad at Mamaw, a saint if there ever was one.

Mamaw died last night.

I was with her yesterday evening until around 7:30. I wasn't feeling well so I went home to rest so I would be able to come back today.
I miss her so much. I always knew I could call Mamaw and talk. She was always kind, always the peace-keeper. Possibly, the most Godly person I've ever known. She leaves an emptiness no one can fill.
Praise the Lord, she is with the Lord right now!

Had a great day with Mamaw Wednesday. She was in rehap at covington. She talked and talked (even though we couldn't understand it all.) She ate good. She was silly. It was a great day!
Thursday she had another stroke. Back in the hospital. Moved to hospice. It's not good at all. I miss her so much!!!!!!! I need to talk to her like always. She loves to talk. There is still so much I need to ask her.
