102 = heaven bound!
Jason's grandmother, Elsie, turned 102 years old today and she passed away quietly early this morning to celebrate her birthday in heaven with Jesus. I cannot imagine any better place to be. She was the last grandparent between the two of us and even though we are glad for her to be free of her earthly body, there is still sorrow in her passing. An emptiness that does not go away even while we celebrate her extraordinary life. Here are a couple pictures of Elsie as a younger woman from the Schlafmann files:
And, from when we saw her during one of our summer visits -- she always loved to play cards.
