ANNE CAUDLE RYMER 1920-2007
on december 30, 2007 my grandmother, anne caudle rymer passed away.
she was an incredible woman, generous to the utmost, most importantly in regards to her time, love and efforts with her family - both immediate and extended. she died in the company of my mother, uncle, aunt, myself, as well as her long time nurse and companion. she lived a long, fruitful, and mostly healthy life, and all that knew her considered ourselves lucky.
her memorial service is being held on jan. 4th in cleveland, TN where she will be buried next to her husband s.b. "skeet" rymer.
i could not imagine having had a better woman as my grandmother and i have created this post as a tribute to her love and her memory. she was a deeply religious woman whose faith gave her comfort and peace in her final hours - something which gave even an agnostic such as myself peace of mind in her final hours. she approached her death with bravery and dignity, much as she did everything else she did in her life. though this post does little in the way of truly honoring her in the way she deserved, i felt it was a necessary gesture, if only for myself....
i will miss you anne and i feel grateful for having known you and having been in your presence at the end.
