Heaven....

Last night my sweet, beautiful, amazing, gracious grandmother passed from this world into the next. Our hearts are heavy. We are mourning the loss of this beautiful daughter of God but with the peace and knowledge that God lives and that our Savior has felt every earthly pain we move forward. We feel blessed that she did not have to suffer any longer and I am eternally blessed to have her as my Grandmother. I feel honored to have known her on this earth and can't wait for the day I will see her again. My Grandfather invited us to attend the temple today, so we went to feel the spirit of peace. It was beautiful! I am grateful for the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and his eternal plan, I know that she is in heaven and that I will see her again because of the Atonement of my and your Savior Jesus Christ.

Hilary,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Going to the temple must have been a wonderful experience and it was a beautiful way to express your love for her. I'm sure that she was there with you, the place on earth where the veil is most thin. You are awesome and I will be keeping you in my prayers.
Hugs,
Hollie
