We are in Cedar Rapids, IA celebrating the life and mourning the death of Grandma Teddy. Teddy had two daughters, Sue and Mary (Mary is married to Carrie's dad Steve). The last years of Teddy's life were spent never fully recovering from some mild strokes. I (Matt) never had the privilege of knowing Teddy in her prime, but she still had lots of wit whenever I talked to her!
We will miss her. If you'd like to see a short video that Carrie made in her honor click here to download a small file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1531820/teddy.wmv
Monday is the funeral. Carrie will be accompanying her brother James on the piano while he sings Amazing Grace. And I have been asked to share a few words about her life and from the Word. We'd appreciate your prayers as we try to make this a special day for all present.
