Heaven welcomed Jason’s grandmother, Lois Stradtner, on Wednesday. She was loving, kind, and had a calm presence about her that we all admire. She loved her husband, her children, grandchildren and great grand children. I absolutely loved watching her love on our kids because she enjoyed them so very much. Some of my most treasured memories are of her reading to Jonah when he was a toddler, seeing her teach Taryn how to crochet and the day she came to meet her late husbands middle name sake after Zachary was born. She had the best smile that lit up the room. Every time they’d visit her arm was looped through Grandpas, or they were holding hands. They have a beautiful love story that started when she’d write to John while he was away at war. When he returned home they married within weeks. She loved sending and receiving mail, it was always so special to her and my favorite thing when we started traveling was to send her postcards that she treasured. We are all going to miss her so very much.
