Heaven is a Wonderful Place

A note from Fiddledaddy:
My dear Mom of 83 years has passed away suddenly, from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She was hospitalized over Christmas, then just a few days ago came home to Hospice Care, where my Dad, all my brothers and sisters, in-laws and the older grandchildren kept a vigil by her side.
One of her most favorite things in this world was praying the Rosary. Sunday afternoon (the Feast of the Epiphany) a daughter-in-law began to pray those prayers aloud, others joined in, and soon all the family was gathered around her bed.
She decided that would be the perfect time to drift peacefully into the arms of Jesus.
Thank you for all your kindness to my family. We have laughed and cried and hugged each other, and felt your comfort across the miles.

God truly has a wonderful place waiting for each of us, and Mom has gone on ahead to get dinner started.
