Grammy

Dennis here.

April's grandmother passed away this evening. She was at home with April's grandfather and her hospice nurse. We understand that she passed away quickly and peacefully.

April is in the first stage of the induction tonight. She and our family are obviously sad about Grammy, but we have all been able to be with her a lot lately. We're glad she is no longer in pain. We don't know what the next few days hold, but we hope to keep you updated.

Thank you for your prayers.

As life passes, new life will come forth. It helps! =) God Bless your family. Thank you for the update. We were praying and praying the baby would turn and I was unable to comment when I first read the post about her turning. We are so happy. Prayers for a peaceful birth and delivery. Look forward to an update.

God Bless!
