RIP - "Nana"

Not too long ago, right before a friend of mine lost his grandfather, he commented that deaths always seem to come in threes. There was Ralph, then Gail, and this morning my grandmother joined them.

Tomorrow would have been her 93rd birthday.

Pray for the repose of her soul and for all of us, her family. She joins my grandfather and aunt (her only daughter) and is survived by her three sons (including my father) and their wives and children.

You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Say to the LORD, "My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust."
God will rescue you from the fowler's snare, from the destroying plague,
Will shelter you with pinions, spread wings that you may take refuge; God's faithfulness is a protecting shield.
You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day,
Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness, nor the plague that ravages at noon.
Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, near you it shall not come.
You need simply watch; the punishment of the wicked you will see.
You have the LORD for your refuge; you have made the Most High your stronghold.
No evil shall befall you, no affliction come near your tent.
For God commands the angels to guard you in all your ways.
With their hands they shall support you, lest you strike your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the asp and the viper, trample the lion and the dragon.
Whoever clings to me I will deliver; whoever knows my name I will set on high.
All who call upon me I will answer; I will be with them in distress; I will deliver them and give them honor.
With length of days I will satisfy them and show them my saving power.
~ Psalm 91

My condolences on the loss of your grandmother. I lost my grandfather three weeks ago, and my aunt last November to a brain tumor. I will pray for you and your family.

Sorry to hear that. She and you will be in my prayers.
