My Grandmother

Today, Sat. April 12, 2008 my grandmother, Jeanie Hogg, left this earth. She was in the hospital for the past week while the doctors tried to correct her breathing problems, but she was in no apparant danger. Late Thurs. night she stopped breathing and they put her on a ventilator and other machines. She had been in the critical care unit since Thurs night. Family rushed out to be with her on Fri and Sat where we took turns sitting by her side as she was sedated. At about 6:50pm tonight she coded. Family gathered at the hospital where we were able to say our last goodbyes and support each other. We are extremely grateful to all the family and friends who have lent their support and prayers. This is a trying time for our family we were really close to her as she was the glue that held us all together...TIGHTLY. She will be missed greatly. Thank you for your continued love and support. I will post further information about the services as plans are finalized.

You are in our prayers! I know how much you love your grandma and what an amazing woman she was! I cannot imagine the ammount of people who are on the other side welcoming her home! All of her family. I always think of the afterlife as one big famly reunion. I bet she is having the time of her life right now!

You guys hang in there Okay? We miss you. and wish we were there.

Nikki, like the previous blogger said Heaven may be one big family reunion and you know how much she *loved* reunions. She is there with my daddy and they are so busy catching up. We needn't worry about those that are passed on for they are taken care of, it's those that are still here that we need to look after. I know we don't talk alot but I love you all. -Kristin Godbehere/Jeannie's niece

Nikki,
You are so right about Aunt Jeannie being the glue that stuck our family together. She has been such a big part of my life, since I married into this family 34 years ago. I will miss her "rose colored" look at life. I love you and even though I am far away, if you need anything, anytime, just call.

You're right, Kristen. She's probably up there handing out name tags right now. She's making sure everyone signs the guest book too. Thanks for all the support you've been giving our family. We really appreciate everyone.
