Just before she died, she was in some degree of pain and wanted the end to come soon. As my mother and two brothers walked into the room where she lay on her deathbed, she cried out, "Come and get me, Jesus, Honey!" My brother did a tasteful eulogy at her funeral. She was a grand olde dame, and the stories were varied, rich, and bittersweet. He brought down the house (church?) when he related that grama, just before she died, figured out the middle name of Jesus Christ: it was Honey.
