FAMILIES ARE FOREVER


We buried a great lady yesterday.

Howie's mother who was nearly 96 years old. 

She had been alone for 36 years after her husband died. 
She found joy in her family and in service to those around her. 

She had a sharp mind until her death. 

It is hard to mourn, she was so ready to be reunited with her husband. 

We will miss her. 
But we know we will see her again.

She obviously lived a good life surrounded by a wonderful family. My husbands grandma passed away 6 months short of her 100th birthday. She, like your mother in law, was a widow and had her mind up til the end. They know when its time to leave and we know they are being received and embraced by their husbands and family members that too has passed on.

sending you a hug,
Saimi

My condolences on the passing of Howie's mother. It's difficult to say goodbye to those we love but by faith we know that their lives has been transformed to a higher life where there is perfect peace, love and harmony.

It's a blessing that she still had a clear mind at her age. What is really sad to see is when their body is sound but the mind is gone.
Big hugs my friend.
