    A.J. , I am so sorry to hear that your grandmother has passed from this life here on earth but I am happy in knowing that she is now in her forever home with the Heavenly Father ! And to know that she is waiting for us to join her there!! Praying for you to find comfort in this even as your heart is broken because she is no longer with you in her earthly home. Love you and am praying for your family ! Love, Aunt Barbara Burnett Standifer
