On Sunday, April 19 at 10 am, Jun Wol Combs returned home to her father in heaven.
I am so grateful that I could visit with her before she left.
My grandmother didn't look well yesterday, and you could tell that she was in a lot of pain.
But, when we saw her this morning, she looked so peaceful and beautiful...all the suffering was finally over.
We actually arrived at the nursing home just a few minutes after she passed away, and as we walked into the building, the residents were having church services and were all singing "How Great Thou Art."
You could feel the love and the power and the majesty of God...and I am so grateful to know that He is here...and waiting to welcome my grandmother back into His arms.
My grandfather died more than sixty years ago and my grandmother has waited her whole life to be with him again...and at last, that too has happened.
My grandmother was an amazing woman of strength and grace. There wasn't much to her...at 4'10", she was a tiny little thing. And although she was quiet, you didn't want to mistake that for weak. When she wanted something...you'd better come along or get out of the way.
Her daughters were her pride and joy as were her five grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. She would have done anything for her family.
I feel so lucky to have known her...and blessed that my children knew her too.
