Donna, Amanda, Alex and all the family: My heart is breaking for you because I know how much you will miss Grandma T (Elizabeth). She lived her life well and if you were blessed to meet her, you immediately loved her. She was just like that. I will miss her wisdom and her infectious laugh so much. You all will be in my prayers as you grieve God's very, very special angel, Elizabeth, and please find comfort that she will constantly be watching over you all.
I so remember the first time I met "Grandma Tennessee" years ago with our dear friend Lynne. I loved her from that instant and have been so blessed to have grown to know her more and more over the years. A short visit with her always became a long visit with laughing and great conversation. She was a beacon of her love of the Lord, her love of life, her love of her family and her love of her friends. To have been able to share Bible Study at "the farm" on Wednesday mornings has been such a joy and a lesson of love, humility and kindness, which she shared freely. She loved sewing and was so talented. I will cherish always the day that I picked her up to come to our home so we could "play" with my new sewing machine that I received as a Christmas gift that year. She said, "I just want to make some button holes! That will tell me if you got a good machine." Well, we never got to the button holes, but she taught me about stippling, binding and some other basic quilting techniques. The button holes became unimportant because we simply laughed, and laughed and laughed that entire afternoon as we sat around that sewing machine. My husband told everybody from church, that we were laughing and "carrying on" so much that he thought "we had been drinking over there." You see, he was working at his desk at the computer 2 rooms away, and he was missing out on the craziness. I can still hear us laughing and our "carrying on" filled up this entire house. Oh, what a blessing she was!!!! I adored her and will miss her every day. But, I see her in heaven laughing just like we laughed that day with our dear friend Lynne. I'm grateful that she touched my life and will look forward to joining her in heaven some day and we all will be laughing once again. God certainly gained an extraordinary angel this morning. Once again, my heart, my prayers, my thoughts are with all of you and if there is anything I can do, just ask, I'm only a phone call away and Mom.
Love to you all! Mary Daniel and Chip Daniel
