This past year Kyle and I collectively have lost 3 grandparents.  The depth of each of those relationships is different, but there is a lineage linked with those we have lost.  They were once newly married with dreams about life and family.  As I reflect personally on my relationship with my grandmother (who passed a year ago today),  I have fond memories of her investing in my life and wanting to know how she could be praying for me.  I am reminded of her strength, relationship with Jesus, and love for others.  I hope to carry that legacy forward.
