Lyda Julia Conway August 9, 1914 - July 5, 2008

My sweet grandma is holding my sweet Pearl in her arms today. Yesterday afternoon my grandma was ushered into the very presence of God...say that again...the presence of GOD....she was met with a loud, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." We are so happy for my grandma but we will miss her so much. I know I will have much more to write later...for now we are remembering what it means to be held.....

Lyda was an angel that graced this earth. She never spoke a sharp word and always found the best in all of us. She has been welcomed into heaven with a grand celebration. She will be greatly missed; however, you now have a very personal angel to help guide you through the difficult times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you & your family during this time of tremendous loss. Let the tears wash away the pain so the memories can shine through brightly.
All our love,
The Greene's
(Lyda's brother-in-law's daughter)

I am so sorry my sweet Laura. Will continue to walk with you during this loss. My children reminded me that Mema got to hold Pearl, Larson and Sophie. She is enjoying all of those babies!!
