Dear Grandma Jackson

My Grandma died today. I'm really sad. She was one of the coolest people that I know. I remember when she was at our wedding reception. Everytime I see clips of it, there is Grandma dancing with all she's got! She also had a license plate holder that said, "She who dies with the most shoes WINS!!"  As sad as I am, I'm reminded that our families can be forever if we are true and faithful to our covenants. I'm so grateful for the association that I have had with Grandma Jackson and can't wait to see her and my Grandpa Jackson again someday.

Katey-so sorry for your loss. I'm so grateful for the knowledge of the plan of salvation, or death would always be so tragic.

I'm sorry Katey but at least you have the right perspective on things. I know that doesn't really make it easier and it doesn't take away the sadness, but it does help to know that there is more after we die and that God has a plan for us both in this life and in the next.
She sounds like an amazing and happy woman. I hope memories of her can always make you smile :)

So sorry, Katey. My gramma died last month, and unfortunately I don't have cute stories of her. She was a little on the "crusty" side, as we say in our family. :) I'm so glad you've got great memories of yours!!

Katey!!! I'm so sorry! I had no idea...I can only imagine how WONDERFUL of a person she is! It is so comforting to have the Gospel in our lives, because you know it's never the end.
