In Loving Memory


Today we said goodbye to an amazing woman, my mother in law, Terry. She was 81 and one of the godliest women I have ever known. She was a prayer warrior like no other. She had a true walk with God. She had Alzheimer's and dementia and has been declining over the past 4 years. Other than that she was completely healthy. The past week she began to seriously decline and they called the family in last night. We are 10 hours away and could not make it there so we FaceTimed her. My hubby was born when my MIL was 39 and they were very, very close. She had not been responsive for several days but last night had asked for my hubby by name. She never opened her eyes but she did talk to hubby last night and it will be a precious memory. He told her that it was okay to go home. And she did just that. As we say goodbye heaven says hello. She will definitely be missed.


  1. Oh I'm so sorry to hear this news! Alzheimer's is a cruel, cruel thing. It tears at everyone in the family. Horrible disease. May your mother in law be at peace now. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

  2. So sorry to hear this. It sounds like she was a very special woman!

  3. Sorry for your loss! What a wonderful reunion it will be someday!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
