Grandma Hazel (1921–2010)

When we got home last night from the dedication, David had a message from his dad saying that his Grandma Hazel had died.

She would have been 90 this February.

We were excited to have her meet Carson and Cole this coming Christmas. The irony is that now because of her death our other family members in South Carolina will get to meet the guys early. We booked tickets last night to fly to South Carolina for the funeral in Greenville at noon on Wednesday.

David has so many wonderful memories of his 30 years with Grandma. It will be good to be with family this week thanking God for her life.

What an amazing woman: born pre-mature at 2.5 lbs. (it was very rare to survive that in 1921), married to a World War II vet (David’s Grandpa Charlie, who died almost 25 years ago), mother of 10 children, lived to almost 90.

She loved Jesus, and it’s amazing to think of her right now in his presence, marveling at his beauty and wisdom and power and perfect timing.

Away from the body
At home with the Lord
–2 Corinthians 5:8
