Saying Goodbye To Grandma Ruth!!!!

With grieving hearts we said goodbye to Grandma Ruth today. Last Friday, June 15th, Grandma Ruth (Lori's Grandma) went home to be with the Lord at 2:50am. Lori and the kids were there when Grandma took those final breaths on this earth. Randy had just left on a military trip earlier that morning and was unable to be there, but he was there in spirit. Today we had a beautiful memorial service and burial for Grandma. She is with the Lord in Heaven now and although we grieve her loss in our family we know she is healthy and whole in Heaven. Grandma was a beautiful lady with a beautiful heart. We miss her already but we are so grateful that she did have opportunity to meet both of our kids before she passed away. She had seen Connor a few times and Mackenzie only twice. I will cherish the days that we had 4 generations represented in our family and I will forever feel her absence.

Thank you for all the love and prayers over the years for my Grandma. It was wonderful to see our extended family today from all over the state of Washington. May you all feel the comfort that only the Lord can give during these days when we miss her most. The pictures below were taken just a month ago on Mother's Day. We love you Grandma!!!





Lovebug Hugs,
Randy, Lori, Connor and Mackenzie

Hi Lori,
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your grandma Ruth. You are right, she was a lovely woman! You and your family are in our prayers today. May Jesus comfort you in the times that you miss her the most. The pictures are awesome. I love the second one where MacKenzie is looking right at grandma Ruth. I think she is telling her about Jesus!
We love you and your family so much! Take care
Love, Sue & family
