We’re all going to die someday

April 10, 2010
By Ann Fretwell, Pastor of Mingo United Methodist Charge

Oh, the wisdom children possess and the joy they bring us. Our granddaughter, Cassie Ann, spoke with me on the phone last evening. She announced that Cookie died today. Cookie was a beloved family pet - in dog years she was 70-plus - and, since Cassie is now 4, Cookie has been a constant presence in Cassie's life. After telling me about Cookie's demise, she further announced, "You're going to die someday, too, Grandma." The little prophetess was on a roll. She then proceeded to say, "I'll die someday. We're all going to die, Grandma." She even sounded joyful about it. I was left pretty much speechless after these revelations and could only mumble something about hoping she'd be around for a long time.
