Today my Aunt Ruby passed away. I'm not exactly sure how old she was--but it was getting up in the high nineties. She never had any children of her own, so we always loved her and visited her just like another grandma. It's not a super sorrowful time as I realize she lived such a long life, but I do feel bad for my dad who was very close to her. He sounded very exhausted on the phone today...that might also be due to his playing with our boys for the last four days!
So, we will miss Great Aunt Ruby! However, we don't mourn as those without hope! Our hope is in Jesus Christ--the author and finisher of our faith! We know one day we will be reunited with Aunt Ruby in the glorious presence of our faithful, loving God!
