Healing is complete

Please rejoice with Jerri as she is in the arms of her Heavenly Father. She has recognized Jesus and her mind is now whole. Please pray for us as there are still rough days ahead. At 2:30 PM the Hospice nurse informed us that she was taking her final breaths. She continued to breathe those final breaths until 3:00. She was strong to the end. She passed with those who love her most gathered at her bedside. We read scripture, prayed, and sang as she entered into Heaven. I will update as soon as I know more. Thanks for your prayers.

Thinking of all of you - I remember those last moments with my Dad back in May. They were precious, knowing that very moment when he passed from this life into the arms of Jesus. We'll be thinking of your family.

7 1/2 year old great niece Gretchen says, "mom, it is ok. She is in Heaven now with Jesus and that is a big comfort." Out of the mouths of babes. Wow,she really does get it! She also says she is sad that she was 6 months old and that was the only time she "met" Aunt Jerri.
