Update

Thank you all for your prayers. Both Mr. Busbin and my Gran passed away last night.

My mom stayed with Gran at the hospital last night and she called me a little before midnight to tell me that Gran had taken her last breath. It was her time to go and now she is pain free. I laid down and did my best to go back to sleep and all that I could think is that she is dancing with God. This is what my mom always says when someone passes that they get to dance with God in perfect peace and love. But, what is great about Gran is that she was a dancer. That is how she and my grandfather (Gramper) met. He was in the military and she taught ball room dancing and he came in for a lesson and they danced! They were amazing dancers. I always knew that at any event where there was music that they would dance. She now has a perfect body that will not hold her back from dancing. She was Grandmother to 8 of us and Great Grandmother to 14 kids (plus one on the way). She lived a great life and she will be greatly missed.

Thank you for all of your prayers.

I was sadden to read this news. Was this your, Moms, mom? If so...I, too, knew her long ago. I recall going to the lake with her and loving it! I would visit her long ago at your Mom's in Dothan. I drove you, once, as a baby to Jax's to visit her. I am so sorry for your lost. I will write your Mom soon. Love, Gail
