    I recently had a cousin that passed in a similar way. Nothing harder, really. My family is very sorry for your loss. Grandma was and still is a sweetheart.

    I had send a private condolence message earlier, but just wanted to add a public one. Helen was very close to me in age and we had a bonding as brother and sister and new the moment God called her to her eternal reward.
    I have the assurance that she is united with our Mom now as I write this. I look forward to meeting her on the other shore with Mom and the others who have went on to be with the Lord after accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior in their livers. God is good and great to be praised and very present help in the time of loss of a sweet loved one like my sister Helen Marie (Smit) Dintelman.
