Sweet Mammaw

On Monday, February 20th, Kyle's grandmother went home to be with the Lord. Her passing away was very unexpected, but we rejoice that she is now experiencing full joy in the presence of the Father. I did not know Mammaw extremely well, but in the little time I did spend with her I came to realize she was a gem of a woman! She was a very hard worker, and she loved her family. If I could use one word to describe Mammaw, it would be sacrifice. She loved her children so much, and she sacrificed a lot in her life in order to provide for them. Kyle and I typically always spend Christmas Eve with my family, but this year we spent it at Mammaw's. I am so thankful that we had that time with her, and that she got to spend it with Hardy. Kyle officiated the graveside service and shared mostly about heaven and what we will experience there. It was a beautiful day, and I felt like we got a little glimpse of heaven that morning. Thank you Mammaw for showing me what it looks like to love and serve your family well. Mammaw, you will be missed!
