With Loving Thoughts

It has been a rough May and June around here. Just before Mother's Day we found out that Doug's mom had a mass in her lungs. A CT scan was taken and then the Friday after Mother's day a biopsy was taken. Before the biopsy results could even make it back, she ended up in the hospital. She never made it out again and on the 26th of May, Carly Weymouth, much loved by her family passed away into the presence of our Lord. She lived a full and happy life living to be 94 1/2 years old. She is loved and she is missed! This is the last picture taken of her on Mother's day this year. She wasn't feeling well but we all were able to make it up at different times in the day to visit with her. :)

We are thankful for the time we spent with her and so thankful to Hospice who helped make the transition peaceful. Both her sons and her husband were with her at 4:25 AM when she took her last breath... Although we grieve, we know that she is in a far better place and watching down in love. Now we help George pick up the pieces and move on with his life....... We all shared some special and loving moments as we spent time with her in the hospital during the last days. One that will forever be etched in my mind was of her grandson, 40, loving feeding her ice cream. it was the last thing she ate before she faded away. It was such a tender and special memory.

Marcia, I am so sorry to hear of your family's loss, my sincere sympathies to all the family.
I was wondering it was strange that you had not updated your blog, now I understand.
She is now in a better place ... 94 years is a great number of years and she must have left you with many nice memories to treasure.

Hi Marcia, I'm sorry to hear of your loss, I'm sending sincere sympathies to you and all the family. As you said she lived a full life and is now with Our Lord. We too recently said farewell to my DH's aunt who was 93 years old and recently she also attended a family wedding in a wheelchair.
Treasure special memories.
Thanks also for stopping by my blog.
