This post is both sad and happy at the same time. Grandma (Alberta) Hosford has passed through the pearly gates after a long battle with a few different illnesses. She went out on her own terms and was able to see and visit with all her loved ones. She was a wonderful woman with a heart of gold. She was always willing to welcome new members into the family. She also loved me like her own granddaughter and truly looked forward to meeting her 23rd great grandchild, Gracelyn Rae. Her constant presence in Dan's life was a real blessing in so many ways. We will never forget her Saturday morning pancakes or Sunday afternoon dinners. Her love and support were immeasurable and she will be sorely missed. She is finally pain free and for that we are truly grateful. Please keep the family in your prayers at this time for peace and comfort. There will be a visitation on Friday at Pederson funeral home and then the funeral on Saturday with a reception to follow. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.
