There once was a grandmother rare,
who had grandchildren spread everywhere.
From South Carolina to Belize you could find her,
My Mimi's a world-dancing bear!

Get well soon!
We all want you to be dancing on your feet again like this!
All my love,

  A Prayer for Healing

Lord, you invite all who are burdened to come to You.  Allow Your healing hand to heal me.  Touch my soul with Your compassion for others.  Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all.  Touch my mind with Your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim Your praise.  Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example.  Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength.  Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever.  Amen.

Mimi, Helen & Granny

  Rest in peace, Mimi.  We will love you and cherish our memories with you forever.  See you in heaven where we'll all dance together again.  Love, Helen - August 22, 2002

  Bubba's Prayer

Dear God,
Please give my Grandmother a good view up there so she can see all of her great grandchildren grow into wonderful people like herself.
Mimi loved all people and was a great role model for us. She deserves the best you have to offer. Thank you for your mercy.
Love always, Bubba - August 22, 2002
