Margorie Schricker, 1916-2011 forever loved forever missed...

In spite of all of this good news, I am saddened with the death of my Grandmother, Margorie Schricker.  She passed away the other night, pretty suddenly.  The part that hurts the most is that I wasn't able to tell her I was pregnant.  She had been praying for us for such a long time and as soon as we found out we conceived, she passed.

She was 94 years old, living in Wisconsin.  She got a cold that went into her lungs and it took her in one night.  The good news is that she didn't feel any pain, she was on morphine.  She is now with our Lord in Heaven and also with my Grandfather, who died four years ago, also at 94.

Her funeral was today, and because I am newly pregnant, we thought it would be best if I didn't travel.  I also feel that my Grandma would have wanted it that way.  However, I felt like I was there in spirit.  I mourned for her death and celebrated her life.  She was an amazing woman with so much love to give.  I only hope that I may be like her one day.  I love you Grandma!


"And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away."

--Revelation 21:4

I am so sorry for your loss :( I lost my Papa in August and my biggest sadness was that he would never know the child we will one day have. Just know she is up there and already knows and is still with you hugging you and holding your hand through this :)

My sincere condolences to you and your family. I feel your pain. My only granny passed away 2 years ago a month shy of her 75th birthday. We were supposed to travel to Europe to see her that year, but instead my mommy and I flew to say our goodbyes at the funeral. To this day I feel an empty spot in my heart for her...

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am sure that your grandmother is watching over you and now knows that you are pregnant.
