a very special lady...

Kaz's grandmother recently passed away. She was such a special woman who loved God more than anyone else. She was 93 years old. She had 7 children, and watched 6 of them pass away. Through all the trials, her faith remained so strong, and she made sure to tell everyone she saw about the Lord. I truly enjoyed every time I got to see her, but my favorite time was 3 weeks ago when she got to meet Annie Rice for the first time. It's a visit that we will always cherish. She had been praying for little Annie for many months, and was so happy to meet her! 
I ALWAYS loved seeing Kaz hold her hands. I have taken pictures of them holding hands at every visit we have ever had with her. It was so special to me. 
Her funeral was nothing but a celebration, because we all know exactly where she is....the only place she has wanted to be in a long time! What an incredible example she set....She was a very special lady and will be greatly missed.

 Annie Rice loved sitting her in wheel chair...




 Matias and Annie Rice played on her bed with all the pillows!

Beautiful words. And you'll be able to introduce Annie Rice to her through the photographs. What a woman of strength! Her welcome to heaven must have been such a celebration.

Such great pictures! I'm sorry for your loss although it's comforting to know that she's in heaven and you'll get to see her again. I lost my grandmother unexpectedly last fall and I so wish she could have met Kaylee because she prayed so much for her.
