Watch

The Ancestor has taken a bad turn. She is on her way home very soon, folks—that's what everything inside me is saying. I believe death will come as a gentleman caller this week. I am on my watch. Thanks to all of you who have expressed care in the past. This beautiful life is really just the blink of an eye, isn't it?

Every time that midnight train whistles think of me sending love down the line.

Georgia, I love you. It was so good (and so typical) to see you in the Saturday morning sun reading your scriptures, getting strong for what's to come. I posted about you on my blog today. Oh, I love that cute Gram of yours, and I love you, too. I know that gift you have, that graceful way you "dance with death" (your term), will serve you well, and I hope that the love from all of us will, too.

What everyone else said.

Love you!

whoa, i always wonder silently about your blogging breaks. and patiently. because i know you are caring for someone special whose life you have been blessing every single day.

thanks for being an example to the rest of us. you rock and i can't imagine what you are going through.
i can guess the greater picture of His Plan might be a comfort (?).

This is the abbreviated version of the response I AM going to write, probably tomororow, to all of you:

The Ancestor is gone.

I've got to get some sleep now.

I ab-soul-lutely love and adore each one of you.

I mean it.

I'll be back with more, really, so please check back, 'cause this just ain't enough of a response on its own.

Jamie said...

Oh, Geo - I'm sending you all my love.

I, who do not cry often - as you know - am crying silently and peacefully right now. Gram was such a wonderful person. I will never forget her kind and generous spirit. She will be missed dearly by all who knew her. My thoughts and prayers go with you now.

LYL,
EEPT
