good-bye grammy.

our little grammy-girl passed away this morning at 7:55 pacific standard time.
she lived 96 long years.
i now know why this past weekend felt so very special.
grammy, you are so special to all of us...truly one of a kind.
i hope you are experiencing the happiest of happiness now.
i love you.

i will tell you more about her in another post, but for now, this will do.

on the wings of a dream
by john denver
(i took some liberties with the lyrics...changing father to grandma and he to she)

yesterday i had a dream about dying
about laying to rest and then flying
how the moment at hand is the only thing we really own
and i lay in my bed and i wonder
after all has been said and is done for
why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone

is this life just a path to the place that we all have come from
does the heart know the way and if not can it ever be found
in a smile or a tear or a prayer or a sigh or a song

and if so then i sing for my (grandma)
and in truth you must know i would rather
(s)he were here by my side
we could fly on the wings of a dream
to a place where the spirit could find us
and joy and surrender would bind us
we are one anyway
anyway we are more than we see

there are those who will lead us
protect us each step of the way
from beginning to end
for each moment forever each day
such a gift has been given
it can never be taken away

though the body in passing must leave us
there is one who remains to receive us
there are those in this life who are friends from our heavenly home
so i listen to the voices in side me
for i know they are there just to guide me
and my faith will proclaim it is so
we are never alone

from the life to the light
from the dark of the night to the dawn
(s)he is so in my heart
(s)he is here
(s)he could never be gone
though the singer is silent
there still is the truth of the song

yesterday i had a dream about dying
about laying to rest and then flying
how the moment at hand is the only thing we really own
and i lay in my bed and i wonder
after all has been said and is done for
why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone
oh why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone

    I miss you Grammy. You are so special to me. I hope the baby in my belly has your spunk and loving care. I hope your cleaning skills and desire rub off on me soon!
    I'll keep my shoulders back...you were good at reminding me of that. You are missed already my Grammy B. I hope you are doing so great! I love you. -Spindley Lindley/your colorado kid/Greenie Beanie)
