We all loved Sister Lantz, and in our frequent visits (I was privileged to be one of her care givers the last 3 years), shared our smiles and tears, and nearly always a song. She'd say that she couldn't get out any more, but she used her years couch-bound for prayer - she felt the Lord still had her here to pray for her family. She'd pour her heart out for all of her loved ones by name.
We will greatly miss her spunk and prayers, and sweet spirit, but heaven was what she lived for, and now she's gotten to see Jesus and He's holding her in His arms - safe and at rest at last! Bless His name, and let's all be ready to join her.

My grandmother was one of the sweetest ladies on earth. She loved Jesus very much. I greatly appreciate everything she has done for me and will miss her a lot .
