Bye Sweet Great Grandma!
My Grandma Christensen (mom's mom) died yesterday morning peacefully. She died of old age, and that is about it. She has been weak and frail for many years and has been ready to "go" for over 5 years. Her first husband and the love of her life died 18 years ago so it has been a trying and lonely years for her. She did remarry but he has also passed on. I will miss my sweet grandma...she was always so inviting, so patient (she raised 9 children) and loving, a great cook, very compassionate, so "together" she ALWAYS remembered names of EVERYONE AND birthdays! She always sent cards (without looking at the calendar). She had 75 grandkids, 102 great grandchildren and a few great great grandchildren! It's amazing to think all those people happened because of her! She lead a wonderful fufilling life and will be missed greatly. I am so happy for her though, she is now with her husband and family that has passed on. She must be so thrilled! I will miss you Grandma C!
