    Memories. There are seasons in this life. Grandma Beatrice was a season of love. We wote back and forth to each other over the years. Gradma knew how to love, forgive, laugh; but was also longsuffering. Still persevere with life. Grandma taught me a lot about love. Family forever, for always, no matter what!! God knows what he is doing when he molds us into that family he gives us. MY grace is sufficient for you. By grace you have been saved through faith. Having been justified by his grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life!!! I will someday see you again in heaven, our real home..
