My Grandmother had lived her life of more than ninety years without taking a breath to think of herself and her needs. Rather, she found her love and grace in tending to the needs of others and in giving of herself to anyone in need of love, comfort or understanding.
Having survived the great depression with her family on a cattle farm in rural Nova Scotia (Canada), Jennie made many sacrifices to ensure the health and happiness of others throughout her life, and to this day is remembered so fondly by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Upon her last day on this earth, her final act of love and appreciation was to a nurse who had come in for morning duties. Jennie looked at the girl and stated quite simply what beautiful blue eyes she had. At that selfless and graceful moment, my grandmother left this earth and moved on to a greater glory than any of us have known.
