The Passing of a Matriarch

This morning at 2:05 a.m. my the last of my grandparents went to be with the Lord. My grandmother (on my mom’s side), Lorene Cagle, died at the age of 96.

My granny was a godly woman who loved the Lord and prayed for every family member on a daily basis.

She came to know Jesus as her Savior when, as a young girl, she walked the aisle when Mordecai Ham came to Chattanooga, TN, in 1933. She was saved a year before Billy Graham!

Please pray for our family as we deal with this great loss.

  1. I am praying brother.

    Blessings, grace and peace to you all.

  2. We have her paternal grandmother left, 86, but my last was just placed in full-time care as her mind continues to deteriorate, also 96 years along. She was not always a very loving person, but my mom played a role in bringing her around and reconciling the whole family.

  3. Sorry for your loss… yet I know that you rejoice because you know you will see her again. I pray for your family during this time of transition. Be blessed Pastor.

  4. Just spotted this. You can be sure that I’ll pray! So sorry for your loss!
