Afghan from Great-Grammie Page

This photo of Helen Page, Steve's grandmother, was sent to us by Steve's parents. The package also included this baby afghan, made by Grammie Page herself.

Why is this so special? Two reasons...

First, because Grammie Page actually made the baby afghan for Steve's birth, 40 years ago. Pretty nifty, eh?

And secondly and more seriously, because Grammie Page passed away earlier this year. So this gift was a message of love from her to Great-GrandBaby Golding Page, even though the two will never meet in this world.

A prayer to commit Grammie Page to God, until we meet again:
Loving Father, we pray that nothing good in Grammie Page's life will be lost, but will be of benefit to the world; 
that all that was important to her will be respected by those who follow; 
and that everything in which she was great will continue to mean much to us now that she is dead. 
Rest eternal grant to her, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her. Amen.
