My Grandma, Helen Michael Kocher Harris, passed away this morning at 10:05 Ohio time. She was 2 days past her 88th birthday. I did get to talk to her on the phone last night, though she couldn't talk back, and I am not sure that she could hear me. (Thanks to my brother Mike for calling and letting me do that.) My mom and my brother Steve had stayed with her all night last night. Her last hours were very peaceful.
As all of this was going on this morning, I was driving to church because I was singing in two services this morning. That was hard. So thankful for my friends Matt and Rachel who prayed with me. I discovered later that we were praying probably at the very moment she died. Since we have been learning about the Holy Spirit lately, Matt prayed very appropriately that the Spirit would draw her to Himself as she passed.
I will miss her very much.
