August: Our Anniversary & Grandma’s Electa’s Death
We had our 7th anniversary on August 17th. Crazy huh! It makes me feel really old actually. Drew’s brother Kirk and his bride Stephanie were in town for their Virginia wedding celebrations so we counted their open house as our anniversary celebration since as it was the night before our special day. Drew’s wonderful grandma Electa passed away in the early morning hours of the 17th. She was to turn 94 this month and was living in a nursing home near by. A nurse went to check on her in the middle of the night and found her kneeling at her bedside as if praying. She had passed away. I can only imagine what she was praying about before she crossed over the veil of mortality. While we are sad that she is gone, we are so happy that she has been reunited with loved ones. Grandma Electa was a sassy little lady and I always enjoyed visiting with her. She always kissed my cheeks and asked me if I was a good cook for her grandson. Electa laughed easily and loved seeing her grandchildren. I very much felt like she was my grandma too!
