My precious Mother-In-Law has passed on today and is now walking those streets of Gold.
Her entire family was with her when she passed away, and prayed and loved her into her new eternal home where there is no more pain or sorrow.
She left us all with the meaning of charity - her heart was so generous, she could never deny anyone in need if she could possibly help them. She also left her humor in our hearts and we will always remember her with with a smile and great love.
Thank you all for all your prayers and support. I ask once again to continue to hold the family in prayer as we go through the next few days of arrangements and the funeral.
Thanks for praying for her dear Pals...

Please everyone.....let's remember to pray for Pat's mother-in-law
and if you have a chance, stop over to her blog and leave a kind word.
Her blog is Living on Grace
Here are the details if you aren't aware of her situation.
I wanted to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes concerning my Mother-In-Law, and let you know what is happening.
Today, she was admitted as a Hospice patient, and hopefully will remain in the hospital and receive her care there instead of being moved to a nursing home. We have several homes that are very good, but at this stage, we really prefer that she not be moved. Her care now is strictly comfort, dignity and peace. She has her son, daughter and the rest of us who love her near her every day.
Having had my own Mother in Hospice care last November, I find great comfort knowing how wonderful they are and how they make this most difficult time a little easier to go through. They were like ministering angels and I can't say enough good about their organization.
Since this is such a critical time, I will be gone from home most of the day...but I still covet your prayers, and can see the hand of God all along this journey.
Thank you all so much for all the love and prayers! Pat
