My grandmother's passing

Last night at about 8:45 PM eastern time, my grandmother passed away. She was 90 years old and next month she and my grandfather were to have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. My grandmother's father pastored four churches in southern California. She was saved at a young age and throughout her life she continued to walk with the Lord. While I miss her, I know that today she is in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As I thought about her passing, I was drawn to the following scripture:
"If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I." (John 14:28)
My grandmother is with her Savior and I am happy for her. I rejoice on her behalf that she is now receiving her reward in the presence of the Father. There is a part of me that wishes I could see what she is seeing, hear what she is hearing, and feel what she is feeling. I long to be as free as she is right now in His presence. My grandmother was a constant witness of the love of Christ for me and for many around her. She will be missed.
