This is the beautiful planter that was sent by my New York family. Mom had so many beautiful flowers and plants given to her family. We also had beautiful candels and lanterns and a throw that has helped in our time of loss to know that Mom was so well liked and will be missed.

The school that Mom worked at will be placing a wonderful plaque in the school to remember Mom by. The poem on the plaque is

Your daily walk alongside children
Has taught them how to walk,
And your example, where to walk.
Your footprints will be the
Stepping stones to their future.
It would be hard to say how many people came to the veiwing, at least 300 with the church being full of loved ones and friends the day of the funeral. My family still ask an interest in you prayers as our life goes on without our loved one. Thank you for your prayers so far.

What a difference that a day can make. My Mom went to be with Jesus this morning at 5:50 am. She was asleep and just stopped breathing. We are all in shock even though we knew that Mom was sick. We thought that we would have more time with her. But I have to give God the glory that He didn't let her suffer long with the pain. Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this very hard time.

Well, as a lot of my family already knows my Mom has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. We have to wait a week to find out how very bad it is and the exact type of cancer it is. So far the Dr. says that the results are that it is a cancer that can not be cured. He does not give Mom a year and in fact said that weeks could be more accurate instead of months. My family and I would appreciate your prayers for all of us during this time. My main prayer is that we would be able to make memories to last our lifetime and that God would be glorified.
