super sucky bad news

when the phone rings really late at night, it's never good news...

i got the phone call from my dad that i've been dreading. Granny left this world this morning (sunday) at around 12:30am. thankfully she went quickly and painlessly. to have been raised by her since i can remember, this is me losing my mother, grandmother, and best friend all at once....

granny was such a character. you would of loved her! she was a practical person. her quick wit would always leave people speechless, but laughing. i am honored that she taught me everything she knew. i am especially grateful for the quilting lessons :)  i was raised right....and i have perfect table manners cause "what if you get invited to the white house to have supper with the president" :)  her sense of humor was a touch on the sarcastic side, but once you got use to it, it was okay. heaven opened the gates for a gem today....she'll have God laughing so hard....

if you would- send a good thought/prayer me and my dad's's gonna get worse before it gets better, ya know....

*damn it*
