My Beautiful Grandma - A Tribute

Today, at 92 years old, my great grandma Georgia Carson passed away.
She is pictured below holding her great, great grandson (my baby).

 She was an amazing person with tons of quirks that made her so special. 

Every time she wrote me a card, she would sign it, "Love your beautiful Grandma!" Hey, there's no shame in bragging on good genes!

As she got older, she always acted like she didn't remember how to play cards and would try to take back a mistake she had made and say, "Well I'll be cotton pickin!" 

She was famous for her lemonade and always had a story to tell. 

She sang her own made up tune while doing every activity.

She loved lottery tickets and would always say, "When we win, I'm gonna buy us a new car!" She was still driving until recently! 

She was the Queen of layering and always had on at least 3 shirts or sweaters (year round). 

She loved dolls and collected many of them throughout the years.

She got married at 15 and was married for almost 77 years. She is survived by her husband, J.T. Carson who is a few years her senior. She has 3 children, 4 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and so far has 1 great great grandson. She also has several loving sons and daughter in laws, grandson and granddaughter in laws, nieces and nephews, and other extended family.

She was greatly loved and loved others greatly.

Surrounded by many family members after my High School graduation. She's in the back corner.

In the 2 weeks prior to her heart attack, The Lord gave me many visions of special holidays and times I spent with my Dad's side of the family, using my gift of prophesy to help me appreciate what I have. I knew in my heart that our lives would be changing in some way, although at the time I was unsure how. For quite a few days, I had so much regret in my heart that I hadn't visited her when I was called to, but I know she felt joy in seeing me at her hospital bedside with some silk roses.

Right now, I feel empty. I feel lonely. I feel a little bit less loved in the here-and-now.

I'm calling on Jesus and asking you to pray comfort over my family.

Dance with Jesus, my beautiful Grandma! I'll meet you in His presence in no time!

I love you. Always will.
