"The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." (Deuteronomy 31:8)
My Aunt Rosemary went home to be with the Lord yesterday. Thank you so much for all of you who prayed. I know the family appreciates it.
My Mom told me years ago when my my Grandpa died that his death was "a beautiful experience". I couldn't really understand that... and she had a hard time explaining it. But, now I know what she meant.
My Aunt had such a positive outlook from the time the doctor told her that she was sick. She wasn't ready to go. No one is. But, she knew Who's care she was really in.
She had a family who loved her as well. I am so thankful that my cousin, Allison, was able to stay with her for the past several weeks (it may be a month now). She took wonderful care of the mother she loves. I know it meant a lot to her and to the family.
I have learned so much from their example and their courage and strength. They displayed the hope we have in the Lord and clung to His promise to never leave us or forsake us.
I wanted to share some photos of my Aunt. Who reminds me so much of my own mother. I'll miss you, Aunt Ro!!

These last two pictures were taken last month
