At peace.

My mum is now at peace.

she passed away yesterday afternoon at home with dad, my brother, her sisters + her brother.
thanks from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has dropped me a email, a card, left a message on here, called or sent me PM's during mum's illness.
you will never know how much your kindness has meant to me during this sad time.
truly appreciated.
just want to share this lovely saying that someone sent me this morning.
"the passing of your mum is our earthly loss and a heavenly gain"
this is so true as my mum had the most amazing faith + I truly believe that is why she was so peaceful as she came to the end of her life.
fly free mum + I miss you so much.
love me

Rachel, here is part of a poem that was sent to us when we lost a loved one...

In life we loved you dearly
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone.
Part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories
your love is still our guide.
Although we cannot see you
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.

hugs
Raewyn

So sorry for your loss Rach. But that comfort in the knowledge that she's not suffering anymore and has gone to her eternal home in heaven.

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
