RIP Grandma Gillow...

September 6th 2007.
Naomi Inez Keesler Gillow passed on.
She was my Grandmother...and so much more. No one loved their family like Gram did. She should've passed on many years ago. She was a fighter and she held on as long as she could, because she knew her family needed her. She was the matriarch of the Gillow clan.
Born in 1915, she survived her husband Lee by 50 years....amazing.
I was unable to attend the funeral, but I did manage to fly home to be with the family for a few days. The trip was far too short and I was reluctant to leave after so short a time, but responsibilities forced me to.
I know that my grandmother is in the house of her Lord. She lived a very pious life and loved unconditionally. We all carry a piece of her with us now.

God rest her soul.
Wherever you are now Gram....know that your loved and missed.

Jay - I know it has been a hard couple weeks bud, but if you need anything, and I mean anything, I am here for you. You're my brother and that is that.
