I am sorry to read about your loss. May God’s words in the Bible at Ps 34:18 provide you comfort. The scriptures tells us “HE” is near to those broken at heart, and those crushed in spirit HE saves.

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile

Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day

Then forget to grieve for my going
I would not have you sad for a day
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best

REST IN PEACE MOTHER DANIELS WE SHALL SEE YOU IN THE MORNING

He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one's lifetime. -Ecclesiastes 3:11-12..

I believe in my heart that I will see you again.

I was blessed to have called you Grandma Ruth. You showed me unconditional love and for that I am forever grateful. I appreciate the legacy that you leave behind and the endless prayers you prayed for me. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I had a praying Grandmother. Though distance kept us apart, my heart always rejoiced at the mention of your name or the sound of your voice. I thank God for allowing me to have had you, Grandma Ruth as my praying Grandmother. I will always love you forever and a day.
Love Titania
