Rest in peace Gramma J! You’re finally free of your earthly body that no longer suited that adventurous soul of yours.

I have no doubt she’s smiling ear to ear, socializing with old friends and hubbies, saying exactly what she’s thinking without skipping a beat, snowmobiling, watching hockey, tearing up the dance floor, flirting with all the handsome men, and living in a house just like hers that she loved so much on the St. Mary’s River.

Death is always sad, but it’s a blessing knowing she’s no longer in pain and free to be herself again.
