I ovastand, the natural order is for parents to leave before their children. But I was not ready for my 89 yr old gran to leave me just yet. But on January 8, 2011 one of the greatest influences on my life, left this earthly plane. My gran. This woman was so amazing on so many levels and she has left behind a legacy that only one of a kind individuals can leave. She left this earth pure after fasting for 27 days. One of my comforts is believing that from the time Drs removed the feeing tube to the time she left us, my gran was spiritually fasting. She left the physical body pure, blessed and at peace. I know this to be true. I feel this to be true. We had so many different visitors after her passing. I heard so many stories of how much of a Godsend my gran was to so many people. She gave with an open heart always and never expected anything in return. She was a strong, but quiet woman with just enough feistyness. I see that in myself. I met family members for the first time and am convinced that I come from loins of loyalty. So much started making sense as to why I am how I am. I am grateful to have grown up with such a virtuous woman and can only hope and pray that I am half the woman she was. I'mma do her proud. I know she is happy and with her husband, my grandpa who happened to die 27 yrs ago. 2 + 7= 9 (completion)
I love you both Leo and Ethel Miller.
