lost a lot of people in my life time. Friends, family and the only
thing that helps us is the strength the Lord gives us, when we depend on
on him, but I have to say that the loss of my mother is the hardest
thing I've ever gone through. Without my faith in the Lord, and
knowing that mom is well and very much alive now, it would not be
know my life will never be the same. Mom and I were very close. I
was the youngest of the four children and I suppose you can say I took
care of my mom my whole adult life. She was such a joy. A
small petite lady, she was strong in ways we could never imagine.
Always soft spoken, and kind to every one, but often she remarked she
would fight a circle saw for one of her kids, somehow I could see her
loved her children very much, Dewey, Robert and Patricia. Of
course we all know the most special things in mom's life was her
grand-children and great grand-children. She often told her
friends about them and with humble pride she showed them the things they
gave to her. She would remark often that they would get her
anything she wanted. I think she was a bit spoiled by that but
then again, she deserved it!
Mom loved the
Lord with all her heart and served Him. Many people were touched
by the kindness and generosity of my mom's good heart. She had
mom was a very kind, generous, faithful person. I know we all want
to say good things about our loved ones, but there's only good things I
can truly say about my mom. Her love for flowers will always be
remembered and we'll never forget the many cards with stickers we all
enjoyed receiving from mom. She made every one feel so special
when they received a card. Mom always wanted people to feel good
and her way of saying I love you and I think of you, was in a card.
worked very hard to raise her children. She took in washing and
ironing to make ends meet. We were never hungry, we were never
left alone. She did all she could to make sure we were cared for
and we knew we were loved.
mom gave her heart to the Lord many years ago. She trusted him with all
of her heart. Her faith has been an inspiration to many people
throughout the years she lived here. She made friends easily and
everyone loved her. Though she was sick, she was never mean, ill,
or short speaking with people. She was always, as in her words,
Thankful And Blessed.
her last days she was loved and cared for. Without our friends,
Carrie and Sherria, I could have not fulfilled her wishes, to be at
home, comforted by her friends and family and to be where she always
wanted to be, in her own home and in her own bed.
was not one that liked doctors or hospitals and when she did have to see
the doctors, the staff was so kind to her and the staff of Hospice was
especially heaven sent.
know that the Lord took special attention to the care my mom received
because she was such a loving, kind person. The Lord made sure she
was treated with the same love and kindness she gave others and gave to
her family. She never saw bad in any one and always gave every one
a kind word.
mom went peacefully into the arms of her Jesus and I can't imagine the
joys she is still experiencing, but one day I'll see her again, we'll be
together and no more will pain, sickness or death will separate us
because God has promised us a heaven.
think of her now being young and well. My heart rejoices to know
the promises of God... Mom never owned a home here, although
she did pay on one, I'm sure that when she crossed that great divide,
one of the things the Lord made sure of was that he handed her a clear
title to a mansion, filled with all the things she loved. I often
wonder if there'll be some things there from QVC?? Of course you'd
have to have known my mom to understand that remark. LOL
you Jesus for taking care of my mom now as you did always. Thank
you for letting us have her for 82 years, now take care of us as our
hearts break daily, we look to you and we can truly say, We're Thankful
