In Loving Memory Of My Mom and Answers To Prayer



Mother has had her bags packed for quite awhile ready to go to be with the Lord. Mom would have been 95 years old this October. These past few weeks have been her worst. The pain of arthritis, neuropathy, and other ailments had become very difficult for her and because of these I firmly believe she was ready for the Lord to take her home.

I'm told she  passed peacefully and quickly once she got to the hospital which was another answer to prayer. While no one wants to loose a love one and because of her suffering we feel very blessed that the Lord took her home when he did. We are also blessed that the good Lord allowed her to be with us for 94+ years. One of our prayers was for the Lord to take her home and her not have to leave her assisted living home at Rosemont. She absolutely loved this place. He followed through with this request.

While we may be sad we are also happy that she is no longer in pain and has a new body. No more does she need her scooter or assistance to go from her bed to her favorite recliner.

I guess if you would ask the hardest thing for us was the morning we went over to clear out her personal things. Normally when we visited her Sandy and I would come to her door and quietly open her door. Usually she would be sound asleep  in that favorite chair. The surprised look and joy she expressed when she awoke and saw us was worth all the gold in the world. That morning she was not there and we miss her dearly.

She has also reunited with her best friend and lover, our Dad who went to be with the good Lord 38 years ago.
We love you Mom and Dad. Rest in peace.

  5. No words can express the feelings Sherri and I have for your loss. We too lost our parents many years ago and miss them so much. You were really lucky to have had your Mom for as long as you did. The Lord must have had a special assignment for her to let her stay. Now her calling is in heaven and she will continue to be a part of your life as she lives on in your heart.

    Missing you
