In Memoriam

This morning I opened my eyes at 4:49. I keep my bedroom clock set ten minutes fast for some reason. My mother just called. My grandmother died this morning at 4:40.

Rest in Peace Ommie

Dear Charmaine,
After I sent you an email I came to your blog and I was thinking I wish you would do a memoriam for your Ommie... So sweet and touching. I didn't realize until now that you resemble her in looks. Thinking of you

Dear Charmaine,

Hugs to you and all the family. I know you were very close to your Ommie. When someone passes to the other side, that's one more to greet you when you go.

I will miss my Aunt Donna, but now when I think of her, she's with me in spirit.

Hey Charmaine,

I know you and your family were trying to prepare for this and I just wish for peace for your family and your Ommie.

You're still in my prayers

I am so very sorry to hear this news. There are no words that truly comfort a person I know but just know I'm here for you anytime you need me. I will keep Ommie in my prayers as well as you and your family at this time. I am truly sorry.
