This is Chuck's (step) grandma Jane. She is now 98 years old and pretty amazing. Her youthfulness inspires me and her sweetness is a blessing. Just think of all that has changed in 98 years. It is almost hard to comprehend. She is such a beautiful lady and she just makes you smile.
On our recent trip we made the effort to visit most of Chuck's relatives. It really was great to reconnect with all his family. On our last day we made the extra effort to go and visit "Grandma Jane". I just couldn't be within driving distance to her and not go and see her. She is truly one of the sweetest little old ladies around. She sends a birthday card (in her shaky handwriting) for all of our birthdays (she has never missed one yet). She is really quite sharp and able to keep up with the conversation (only a little hard of hearing). We enjoyed her telling us stories of her childhood and her favorite doll. She is just about as cute as they come.
Tally just opened the card that Grandma Jane sent for her birthday and she had included a hand written letter. It was such a special letter that Tally put in a special place to keep. She thanked us for coming to visit her and let us know how much she appreciated it.
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world ~ James 1:27
