Another Sad Day

This week we are saddened by the loss of Mark's grandma. Although I'm sad for our family's loss, I'm blown away at the amazing life Grandma lead. She was born on 1923 in New Hampshire and as a teenager attended business school in New England. She joined the Navy along side sister in 1943 during WWII. In the Navy, she met her husband and they settled in SC where she became the mother of nine children and later had 20 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. They ran a farm and she operated a local business for over 30 years. She was a founding member of her church and was steadfast in her faith. It sounds like an amazing 87 years to me.
