Best Grandma Ever!

I'd like to share with everybody the first part of this post today and also the news that Grandma Bonnie passed away peacefully at her home last evening with Lloyd at her side, which is exactly where she wanted to be.

Do you believe in God Winks? I have one for you... Richard and I had just stopped by to give Grandma and Lloyd some dinner, nothing fancy because we were in a rush last night. We took her some chicken strips which she loved, and one of her favorite things, a fruit smoothie.

We came home and were scrambling around trying to get the new motor home packed up and fixed for Memorial Day camping. Now, Richard has been working non-stop on the electrical system for two days. No one, not even the previous owner was able to help us find out what the problem was with the lights. We were standing there scratching out heads for the 10,000th time when Rich suddenly had a thought, and started fiddling with more wires. Eureka... He fixed it! The lights came on.... Everything was going, and our big blue (coincidence?) camper was working. He was ecstatic... Seconds later, the phone rang with the news. Our angel Grandma Bonnie surely had a hand in this miracle. I believe fully that she showed him the way. If you knew Grandma and her love of camping, you would know that this would be exactly something that she would do.

Please think of my in-laws today, who have lost a dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Bonnie is no longer sick and she is having the best day ever. The rest of us will be ok with time. Love you, Grandma, Karen, Clint, Kevin, Brian, Lloyd, Richard and everyone. . .

So very sorry to hear of your loss. You are right, she likely showed hubby how to fix the electrical as her final gift to you all. Take care and may you all find peace in your cherished memories of such a special lady.
Hugs xo

I know it's a loss for you and the family still here, but she's with God in His heaven and will be watching over each of you. Blessings.
