Thanks

Thanks to everyone who prayed, let candles or sent energy for my aunt Fran. She passed away Saturday evening about 10:30 in the hospital most of my family (including me) were born in. My mom and another sister were staying with her at the time in the hospital room so her husband and sons could go home and get some rest. Luckily they made it back before she was completely gone. It was a relief for her and for all of us that she passed because she was in an extreme amount of pain right before the end. I had been in the room earlier in the day and saw both her parents there (they passed back in the 60's) as well as her brother Bill. Cancer had taken him about 16 years ago. So I knew it was near time for her to go. She was like a shrunken raisin compared to the full sized person she'd been when I saw her in early January.

Funeral is Wednesday. Deb and I are leaving Joliet Tuesday night to head down to Carthage. Again thanks for all the help.

Peace,

Wander

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and all the faithful departed. May perpetual light shine upon them.+

I'll be praying for you and your family.

I'm sorry W *hugs*

Thanks. I'm leaving soon for the funeral. We have a very emotional extended family so this won't be a lot of fun tomorrow.

I'm sorry for your family's loss. I hope the rest of the family takes solace, like you, in the fact that she can now be at peace, without pain.

Oh I think they will after getting past the initial shock of her passing.

Thanks,
