On our way up to my brother-in-law’s funeral today, my Dad called and told me that my Mom died this morning at 3:30am.

He was awake and there by her side when she died, and he said it was as peaceful as death can possibly be. She went without pain or struggle, and now she’s with her Lord.

I may have mentioned that her Dad was in a wheel chair all of my life, and it makes me smile to think about her running and playing with her Daddy again.

Thanks for all the comments lately, I appreciate it, even if I don’t get back to everyone.

  3. What a lot for your family to bear. We’re thinking of you and praying on your behalf for strength and some measure of peace through all this.

  4. The LORD is good,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
    He cares for those who trust in him.
    (Nahum 1:7)

    I am praying that God will surround you and your family throughout the losses you have suffered. I pray that you will run to God, your refuge, so that you may all experience his care. 2 Cor. 1 says that the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! What a beautiful thought, that your Mom is running and playing with her Dad, and also the Lord her Father! She will never again know pain or trouble.
