This is Mica, Patti's Daughter -in -Law. We just got home from a long emotional week with Patti's Mom, (Gramma Grape). Patti's Mom passed away last Monday with all of her family at her bedside. Patti leaned over her mother a moment before she was taken by the Lord and told her it was okay to go home.. in the loving embrace of her daughter and her two sons and all her grandchildren and great grandchildren around her bedside she opened her eyes and looked up with a tear in her eye.. the Lord took her home at that moment.
The service was held at her Church on Saturday, completely full and emotionally heartbreaking, yet a peace in all our hearts, that she has a new body and will await her family in heaven. Patti is still going to have a long road ahead.. Tony ( her Son) and I spent everyday with her, helping her through.. but had to leave her on Sunday.
Please continue to pray for her and her heart to mend some. She has to pack up her mom's belongings this week, which can be very difficult to sort through. She could really use some encouraging words when she comes home later this week. I just wanted to let you all know what was going on.. she will be back here as soon as she can... though she is hurting, she is also a very strong person..she just needs time and lots of LOVE !!!

Patti,

After you left your comment today, which was insightful and I appreciate it, I came to see if you wrote about losing your Mom.

I am so sorry and I understand what you are going through. It's hard. I'm still sorting through her things that I can't let go of.

I said Mom was an alcoholic, but it wasn't the every day type. She had quit drinking about 10 years before she passed away. Yes, she was definitely my constant. I think losing a Mom is almost second to losing a child. My prayers are with you for strength and comfort.

Love,
Debbie
