Hugs and prayers for all of you on their way from Indiana.

There is a story that describes the person dying as a ship leaving the
shore with all the people gathered waving and crying. And the ship
sails away until they can no longer see it. But just as it disappears
from their view, the ship appears across the horizon, and there, on
the far shore, all the people who have waited its arrival shout in joy
and welcome.

Your grandma is waiting with open arms. May your grandpa have a safe
and gentle passage.

Heidi that's beautiful. Of course, it made me cry, but in a happy way.
Thanks for sharing that.

Thank you Heidi. Your little tale will probably comfort several of us in
days ahead.
