Trip to PA

My 96 year old Grandma, Grace Tuttle, went home to be with her Lord for Christmas.  
She passed on Saturday, December 21.

We decided to drive to Pennsylvania on Thursday, December 26.
The Internment was for family only on Friday afternoon. We had a sweet time of singing all around her casket at the funeral home and then we proceeded to the burial.

That evening we all gathered at Ben & Sara's home for fellowship & a meal.

Saturday morning, December 28, was the Memorial Service at Calvary Baptist Church in Landsale, PA.  Most of the ladies in the family wore a piece of Grandma's jewelry. We girls wore one of her pins. Grandma always had a pin on her sweater or lapel.

What a blessing to ALL be together!

78 were in attendance; 18 were unable to attend

We enjoyed meeting the newer family members, or just ones we hadn't seen in years. 
Here I am with my niece, Charlie Grace.

The three Meg's of the family.

There was a lot of cousins and second cousins playing.

My Grandma was loved and she will be missed. She loved the Lord.  She loved each of us individually. She let us share our burdens. She was a prayer warrior. We knew she would pray for us and not tell anything that was shared in confidence. What a legacy she and Grandpa left and what a gift family is!

Proverbs 31:28-30
 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
