We mourn the life of Alice Clark, but Celebrate the life of Granny. She was a caregiver and food preparer by trade; but a Granny by divinity.

As Christians, we are called to live our life as Christ lived His.  We are to serve as Christ served. Granny fed the hungry, provided shelter to the uncovered. She gave to those who were not given anything. Granny loved those who otherwise were not loved.  Alice Clark was Everyone’s Granny.  The world lost a woman, but Heaven gained a Granny.
