2 Condolences for GERTRUDE RAY

  • There are so many things I can say about my grandmother! She was a loving, caring, and wonderful woman. She always looked out for her grandchildren and wanted to know how we were doing. When I married she gave me so much support and encouragement. Until my husband came over from Africa she would keep a picture of him on her dresser. He lost his grandparents at an early age… And it warmed his heart that she excepted him into our family and called him her grandson. When I would talk to her on the phone, she would always send him her love and a kiss. I saw her a month ago…and she never forgot our anniversary. She handed us a card and as she always did, she said stick with Jehovah! She was very faithful in her service to Jehovah. We may not have heirlooms passed down to us, but better than that she gave us something priceless and everlasting= a spiritual heritage. I love you grandma Ray and look forward to seeing you in the new world (Rev 21: 3,4 where death will be no more!
