Last Words

Saturday, June 21, 2014

On Tuesday morning June 18 we visited my sweet mother-in-law, Lucille at her care home, She had been having good day and bad days. She was very tired of battling to get well with the injuries on both arms and legs, having pain in her right forearm and it seemed somewhat swollen. She couldn't sip on the straws anymore, so I gave her strawberry milk and water from the straw, that she enjoyed. We knew she was not going to be here very long. My DH talk to her about Heaven and that she didn't have to stay here, and when she got there to give hugs to Jesus, her hubby and our 3 daughters, her parents, other family and friends there, Hi from us. She was tired, had lived a long life at 105. When we were leaving her, this is what she said in a large clear voice, with one hand up as waving,

"Tell Everyone Goodbye here, Cause I'm Leaving"

She passed away at 12:30 am on June 20,2014

Thank You all so much for your Prayers, Love and Concern, that you have shown during this hard time, saying goodbye for a while to our loved one.

    Thanks everyone for your kind wishes. We went to the funeral home today, and Lucille looked very much at peace. My daughter Karen was a little afraid, of what to expect, but after reassurance, was OK.
