A Brief and Unfortunate Note

My grandmother, Wilma Abbott, died yesterday. Her health had been failing for a long time. Perhaps, because of that, no one really expected it when it came.

Earlier this summer I was able to sit down with a video camera and interview her about her life story. It's a document I'm sure coming generations of my family will treasure.

Both she and my grandfather had returned to church in the last decade or so, even having been baptized when they both were well past their mid-70's.

It's a comfort to know that to "be absent the body is to be present with the Lord" and that she joyfully awaits the coming ressurection.
