Dear friends,
I hope you and your family had a blessed Christmas day with your family.

Sadly, for my family I learned of the passing of my 96 year old maternal grandma about 1:00est on Christmas day. She went to be with her Lord and is now in complete rest.
We rejoice In the full long life she lived. She always told me she wanted to live to be 100 years...she gave it a valiant try. I would so covet your prayers for my mom, her sister and our entire family during this next week.

Grace Estelle Marie Stites Lane, you will be missed!

I do plan to travel to Boise where we will be honoring her life.

Thank you in advance.

Lorena, I am so sorry for your loss. I never knew either of my grandparents as they died before I was born. You were very fortunate to have her with you for so many years. Take care and God bless.

Dear Lorena,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad you were able to have her a part of your life for so many years. My grandmother, who I was very close to, passed away when I was only seven and I still miss her after all these years! I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Take care, sweet friend.
