Though you are gone you are not forgotten we love you. Though you’re gone you are not alone. He sits on the throne. He is full of Grace He sees you’re smiling face no fear to embrace.

You are finally in your resting place.

Dear Grandma,

I love you. You are always in my prayers. Jehovah God cares for you very much. Romans 15: 4 For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope. Job 6:10 For even that would bring me comfort; I would leap for joy despite the unrelenting pain, For I have not denied the sayings of the Holy One. Psalms 34:4 I inquired of Jehovah, and he answered me. He rescued me from all my fears. V18 Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 55:22 Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to fall. I pray these scriptures comfort you. I love you dearly.

When I think of my grandmother, I always remember those warm greetings she would give me a big hug than call me her cookie and say “heyyyyyy Cookie”. We would spend the weekend with her and I would play hair dresser and what I thought was doctor. I grease her scalp, did her hair and massage her legs and back. I and my brother Dev’Ron would be in a competition to see who did it the best. She always told me to make sure I go to school and get good grades. Even though she lived far away she always called me to see how things were going. She would say you be careful out there and give your baby Robert a kiss for me. I really love and miss my grandmother and can’t wait for the day that the bible prophecy at acts 24: 15 is fulfilled. So long Grandma Cat until we meet again. Love you always.

You’re Cookie Ronlyn

Grandma Catherine

Our Father has called for you to come home

There is a place for you right next to his Throne

You answered the call though there was no rings

He spoke to you and said it’s time for your wings

You had an unspoken request, he gave you more time

Because you wanted us to know what was on your mind

You said be strong, be smart stay humble

Put your trust in the Lord even when you struggle

In so many words you gave us a lesson

Always do the right thing and receive your blessing

I say it was you, you were truly our blessing

We love you Grandma and glad you finally resting

Your at home now where you supposed to be

Up high in the sky watching over our family
