I just found out today that my grandmother, Myrtle, who is 87, is dying and should pass in a few days.  Prayers for a peaceful end to her life and strength given to her family who will miss her dearly.

Thank you all for your prayers.  My grandmother, Myrtle, reposed late Tuesday night near midnight.  There will be no funeral nor memorial service; such are her wishes.  She is to be cremated and her ashes scattered at sea.
