Reunited


My Grandma Thomas passed away on Monday evening. Even though I am rejoicing that she is with her Savior and no longer suffering, I am saddened not to have her here any longer. I'm sure Grandma is joyful to be reunited with her husband, her son (my father), her sister, her parents, and her daughter that have all gone on before and that she has missed greatly. Grandma has always been a great example of faith for me, an incredible prayer warrior. She will be greatly missed! Since we had, only moments before we received the news, just returned from our trip to Tennessee, we were not able to attend her memorial on Thursday in Indiana, but Caitlyn and I were still able to take part thanks to my brother. Andrew made it possible for me to be "present" for the whole service via webcam. I have a webcam on my laptop and Andrew and I are able to talk to each other over the computer, so using his laptop I was able to be there, kind of. He also uploaded a video of Caitlyn playing "Amazing Grace" (video below) that was played at the end of the service on a projector screen. All in all, I was VERY thankful that we were able to utilize these tools and that I was able to have that experience. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty that Grandma is reunited with her loved ones and alive and well forevermore!

Sorry about your grandmother. I am glad that you were able to "be there" for some of the funeral. Caitlyn did a beautiful job with the violin. I will be in prayer for you and your family.
