My beloved grandma passed away at 11:11 pm on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.
This quote always reminds me of her:
"When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will still be standing, because it is a celestial institution, formed outside telestial time. The women of God know this." —Neil A. Maxwell
Words cannot express how much our grandmother meant to our family. My grandma was truly the matriarch of our family. She was the essence of charity and the epitome of a mother. I am excited for her reunion in heaven with her sisters (she was one of six sisters) and her parents and her best friends. I am also excited to introduce my children to her when we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again, Joyce Delight. I will love you forever.
