Another Angel

Yesterday was a hard day for my family as we said our final goodbye to one of the sweetest, loving, stubborn (yes it's where I get it from!), SUPER strong and most giving woman I've ever met. My grandmother, Bonnie Kirkwood, graciously and peacefully went with Jesus on Sunday afternoon. She left behind her husband of 52 years.

Two loving daughters.

5 grandchildren, 3 step-grandchildren, plus all the grandkids she gained through marriage!!

And 3 great grandkids!

She loved her family, and always made sure her life was surrounded by the ones she loved! After finding out she had cancer back in 2006, she fought hard and showed my family what true strength was. She looked the evil monster dead in the eye and said it would not bring her down....and it didn't! She fought hard and won! After two more relapses that evil monster finally took my grandmother but on her own rules...her own terms! it wasn't until she was ready, until she had time with her family, and then peacefully she went! And now she walks those beautiful streets of gold, pain free, cancer free and cuddling with my dear angel baby Conor.

He Only Takes the Best
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you,
And whispered “Come to me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts
to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
By Therese Pearman

I love you grandma!
Thanks for showing me how to be a strong loving and generally GREAT woman!
