Grandma Buna

For those of you who don't know, my Grandma Buna (mom's mom) passed away Sunday night. She had been in the hospital for over a month recovering from a broken hip and just didn't ever fully recover.
She was truly a lovely, kind soul. I know everyone always tries to make people sound like a saint once they're gone, but...she truly was one. I have never heard her say a negative thing about anyone and she was never anything but full of love. Everytime we saw her she would hug us tight and let us know how much she loved us. Not one of us will ever wonder if she loved us. She made sure we knew.
Please keep our family in your prayers. We know that she is made new and whole in heaven and I am thankful we have that to celebrate. We mourn with hope and joy because our God is mighty to save, and we will see her again in heaven... and when we do she will not be laying frail and weak in a hospital bed.

This is at my baby shower last year, Grandma Buna is on the right.
We love her and miss her.

she was truly one of the most kind and loving people I ever was blessed to know. She always sincerely asked how you were doing and had such a loving aura about her. She is without a doubt enjoying her new life with Jesus. a.p.

Although I only met your Grandma Buna a few times, it was enough to know she was a very special lady. I'm very sorry for your loss. I know how great it must feel.
