Friday my Mother went home to be with the Lord and to join her beloved husband.
As many of you know my Father passed away on Dec. 10th and Mom wanted only to follow him quickly.
She woke my SIL at 4AM and they sat together holding hands. She said Mom looked over at my Dad's empty bed and cryed, "Oh, Ed-Oh, Ed". She would say this when she longed for Dad. As you can imagine, it just broke my heart to hear her cry out for him like this.
My Sil checked on her hourly as she slept, then at noon when she checked, she'd found she had passed.
I'm rejoicing that she is with the Lord and my Dad again, and that she went peaceably. I can't thank the Lord enough for giving me such wonderful parents-I was truly blessed.
But my heart hurts to think of life without them.......
