Ten great-grandchildren, nine great-great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends. Grandma's Gone to Heaven One quiet day the angels came And took grandma far away But in the stillness of the night I could almost hear her say Dear grandchild I will miss you You mean so much to me But Jesus called me to his side In heaven I will be A place of God's great beauty No Tears or early cares Only peace and joy forever And love beyond compare So, remember all the good times Don't think about the sad Treasure all the special moments Through the years we're always had And if you trust in Jesus I can promise this in more You will get a hug from grandma Someday on Heaven's golden shore" Acknowledgements In this hour of sadness, we wish to acknowledge with our sincerest gratitude, the outpouring of love, sympathy and prayers we have received from our many friends, neighbors, and church family. God bless all of you. The Washington Family
