She's Gone

Dear Mom,
Thank you.  Thank you for all the years we had with you.  Thank you for your warm smile, for your contagious laugh, for your good heart.  You were an amazing woman.  Truly amazing, and I'm so thankful that I got to be part of your family these last ten years.

You raised 16 amazing children, one of whom I get to call my husband.  Your smile will never be forgotten.  I am so glad that you are free!! Free from your body that was so broken.  Free to be healthy and express yourself, to move and bless.  

I can feel you.  I can sense such a strong spirit of peace and joy.  So much happiness.  

Even though it's hard now, I'm so glad we all have each other.  Your 16 beautiful children, your parents, your husband.  It's priceless.

I know I'll see you again.  I know you are in a better place.  I love you.

Forever and always,


  1. Dear Ruth Anne I am so sorry for your terrible loss. I know your mil is in a better place and for that you can be thankful. While in our minds we know she is no longer suffering in our hearts it still hurts.
    I pray for you as it seems like she was a wonderful person who will be greatly missed.

    I am sorry this is my first comment in awhile, I have been sick for 2 weeks and am only know reading blogs.

    big hugs to you and your family, MB

  2. My heart goes out to all of your family who mourn the loss of this wonderful woman. I pray that you will indeed be comforted by the Holy Spirit as He has promised. What a wonderful legacy for her to leave...a huge family to remember and celebrate her life. Lots of love, Dawne
