A Final Update and a Thank You

I am sad to say that "barring any new infections" did not last long.

When you are that fragile, any small infection turns large very quickly.

My much beloved mother-in-law passed peacefully to Eternal Life yesterday evening, surrounded by the loving presence and prayers of her husband and children (including children-in-law).

Thank you so much to all of you who prayed for her!  She accepted Baptism less than an hour before her passing.  Truly, she passed from love to Love.

We all miss her so much, but we are glad she is home.

We've had a Mass offered for all those who prayed for her.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  May God bless you abundantly for your charity and compassion to us in our hour (month!) of need.

I am so sorry to hear your sad news. What a consolation it must be to know your MIL was baptised before she died. From love to Love. Yes. I imagine it's been a very difficult up and down time for you. And although the uncertainty is finally over, there is now grief to be faced. I shall pray for you and your family, and also for your MIL. It's kind of you, in the midst of your sorrow, to think of everyone who prayed. Thank you. God bless. Love Sue

I send my heartfelt sympathy. My mother passed in similar circumstances almost 21 years ago and I know how devastating it feels when you try to stay hopeful amidst the complications. I'm so sad for you, your husband, father-in-law and children. Thank you Jesus for accepting her into our family before she died. I like how you said it "from love to love". Beautiful. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord. Hugs to all.
