About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
That is so precious!
It was a precious time for their family. They were left lonely for him, but knew they lacked nothing in doing everything possible clear to the end.
Best wishes to you and your family! I can imagine what that young lady is going through right now. Mom, siblings and other loved ones! My condolences! Death leaves us with grief beyond words. Even watching another person go through it takes something off of you…
Death is always hard. This one was preceded by so much pain, he was eager to go to his Heavenly home. He was a good man and is greatly missed. Thanks for your concern.
My heart goes out to you and your family, Oneta. ❤
My sister has made wonderful strides to coping without him but she is lonely and he is missed. But the “sting” of death did not occur. Praises to Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life. Hey, it Easter week. Have a great celebration time.
Praise God for that! Happy Easter to you also. He is risen!!
It is so hard. I hope your sister is able to cope with it. May god bless her and her family with his choicest blessings.
Thank you, dear. She quickly and easily relies on Jesus. She has family support also.
RIP, may the soul of the departed be blessed in thousandfolds!
(Sigh) It’s not fun having people close to you die, even a friend. I have no idea how loved ones go to funerals it’s too hard for me to even watch! 😦
Here’s a little story:
My family has moved to 4 new houses before. So, I’m used to making friends and leaving friends…. I had made a Best Friend, but I wish, I never did, because you see, we were in a renting house at the time. Yup, we stayed a year then moved again, but that tells me a lesson. To me you don’t always need a Best Friend you just need family and Christ. To me that’s more important then a Best Friend. As sad as it is for me to even think… 😦
