Memaw

So much has happened with special visitors and Walt, but that is for another day because as time passes some of our most important people become older and their bodies to frail to continue in this world. Please pray for my family as we go through grief once more, letting go of our Memaw. She came to every recital, football game, band competition, and school function because she loved us so much. Although she was an older woman, we were not expecting this and we are all frozen in shock.

Death has become so much more real to me. Why do I continue to try to keep up with the things of this world? They are not forever. Clothes will go out of style, parties will be forgotten, and houses will crumble. Years from now which memories will I cherish? Who or what will have had my time? This life is short, and I am praying that God will continue to convict me on how my time is spent so that I may continue to grow to be more like him and love better the people closest to me.

  1. So very sorry for your loss, Julie. You and your family are in my prayers.

    Sure sounds like you have had a perfect example of a woman who made all the right decisions in how to invest her life in those she loved.
