Miss Terry's Grandmother has passed, here is a copy of an email she sent out to her family and friends and she asked me to post to the list:

It is with both sadness and joy that I send this e-mail. My paternal Grandmother, Miriam Estelle Shaw Reeves, passed peacefully in her sleep early Saturday morning. While she was very lucid up until the moment she went to sleep, her heart was becoming more and more, weak and her body was tired. She lived a very long (95 years), full life, and was ready to meet her Maker.

Grandmother was an extremely talented woman in many ways, particularly musically. She was a very talented musician with a beautiful voice, and could play many instruments, including piano and guitar. She and her 5 brothers and 2 sisters traveled the southeast performing when she was just a mere teen. I have fond memories of singing with her and my father at the old upright piano as a child. She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit, and I’m thankful to her for the gift of music, for my wonderful father, for her unconditional love and support, and for many other gifts and memories she provided throughout the years. I had the opportunity to spend some time with her last week at the hospital and personally thank her again for all of those wonderful gifts she gave me and my family, and sang to her one of her favorite hymns. Miriam Estelle Shaw Reeves’ funeral will be held at Wages Funeral Home in Stone Mountain, GA on Tuesday, July 14, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Family will receive visitors tonight at the funeral home from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made in memory of Miriam Estelle Shaw Reeves to the Music Program at Beacon Heights Baptist Church, 1051 Carmichael Drive, Madison, GA 30650-4715. I pass this along for information purposes only and in response to inquiries. We certainly do not expect attendance and donations from people who didn’t know her.

For my friends with whom I also do business, I will be out of the office until Wednesday morning, but will be available by phone periodically as needed and will check e-mail several times per day.

Thank you for your friendship, and on behalf of my family, for your support and prayers as we celebrate the “homegoing” of my dear Grandmother.

Terry

Prayers of comfort going out for you and your family, Terry. Sounds like your grandma was a wonderful woman who lived a good, long life; brought a lot of joy to others in her time here; was deeply loved; and left a legacy of warm memories to comfort those whose lives she touched. It's nice you were able to have some quality time with her before she began her journey. Godspeed Miriam and rest soundly.
