  2. CandleGod Bless you Uncle Bob. What a joyous reunion. To be reunited with Aunt Liz, Grandma & Grandpa, your Brothers and Sisters. Please give my Dad and my Alyssa a big hug for me. My thoughts and prayers are with you Corrine, Tina, Roberts, ALL of you. Uncle Ray, Aunts Julia, Mae, Rose. I LOVE YOU! xo

  3. CandleI continue to struggle with my religious and spiritual beliefs generally but also as it relates to my Grandpa’s passing. However a part of me believes in receiving signs from God. That part of me was able to receive the three signs sent to me in the last three days. The first one was a feather in the middle of my dining room, the second was the single dry bean I found while cleaning the front patio, and the last was another feather that I found in the middle of typing this. You may remember Grandma Liz with her feather pillow. You may also remember Grandpa cooking his delicious pot of beans…

    I feel overwhelmed with love. I am blessed to receive such signs, even though my belief in God is not 100%. On the other hand, is anything truly ever 100%? I will continue to pray and keep my mind open to what I am being given and what I already have.

    Grandpa, I love you. Grandma Liz, I love you. I will see you both one day, and as painful as it is to live without you, I still find myself increasingly hoping for me to live a long life. I’ll see you when I see you and it doesn’t have to be today. Likewise, I don’t have to be the decider of when I go. I will let God decide. I pray that I have much time and much laughter left in me.

    When I see you, I hope to join you in dancing forever. That’s my vision of heaven. Dancing forever to a song we can all appreciate, that we all know the words to…
