In memory of my beautiful Granny, who worked hard and served others her whole life.Rejoicing that you are now free of pain, free of sorrow, free of drudgery, and are finally able to be happy. Not many outside your family have ever heard of you, and many of your friends and family went ahead of you, but the Father knows your name, and I know he welcomed you, "Well done, good and faithful servant...enter into joy."
