A MESSAGE FROM HER KIDS
It is with bitter-sweetness that we say good-bye to Mom for now. She was the perfect example of a mom, friend, caregiver and Christian prayer warrior. We are grieving for the void that she has left in our lives and hearts, but celebrating that she not only is with her Heavenly Father and not hurting anymore, but that she also got to spend her 65th anniversary with our Daddy.
Mom was a nurse for 38 years but she lived her entire life helping people and putting everyone else’s needs before her own. She said she felt like she let us down as a mom because of her busy career but she was so wrong. Her greatest accomplishment was teaching us about Jesus. She taught us right from wrong and showed us how God wanted us to live our lives. We still learned a lot of things the hard way because of the choices we made, but she was always there for us, always praying, never giving up on us and rejoicing when we found our way back.
She would always say “God will make a way when there seems to be no way” whenever we were facing impossible looking circumstances. Her faith in God was always there. Even in her last days at the hospital when she was in extreme pain she would cry out “Help me Father” or start reciting scriptures and as soon as the pain started easing she would say “Thank you Father”. “God is good all the time”. She prayed for the doctors and staff daily. She had us keep a list of all her caregivers who cared for her with love and tenderness so she could give a good review for a job well done if she received a survey by the hospital.
We would like to thank Dr. Amin and the rest of the ARMC staff who took care of her needs with loving compassion. We are also very grateful for the excellent care she received by her Kernodle Clinic providers- Dr. Aleskerov and Dr. Fitzgerald.
