Walking The Streets Of Gold

**Edited - Removed identifying information for confidentiality**

Babe's grandma went home to be with the Lord yesterday.  We got the call when we were on the road driving home to MN.

Even though we are sad that she has passed, Babe and I are grateful that she didn't die on Wednesday, our embryo transfer day. That would have been really difficult for us. 

Grandma was quite a character. Though not highly educated, she was sharp, witty and had a lot of spunk. She would watch people like a hawk and noticed the smallest details.  In fact when Babe and I were first engaged, we were at a family dinner. She was the first to notice my engagement ring!  She was very competitive when it came to games which we played a lot.  She didn't mess around and spoke her mind as she pleased. But she loved her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. 

We will miss her terribly!  I was privileged enough to spend over a decade knowing her, and helping take care of her during the last days of her life. 

Grandma, we miss you already but I bet you are having a great time dancing a polka with Grandpa!

  6. I, too, am sorry for your loss. It sounds like she lived a long and happy life, and like you said, she is walking the streets of gold. Heck, she's probably dancing on them as we speak! I know your hearts are heavy - I am praying through the loss of this precious lady, the Lord will bless you with little ones and a BFP in the coming days. Hugs, Mel @ thereisahigherhope.blogspot.com
