My Momma's Gone

My momma passed away Saturday night. She was very peaceful, and gave us a reassurance that she was ready to go and "see Jesus." I had a wonderful time with her Friday, and we all got to say goodbye. I am so sad and she will be missed, but there is a comfort knowing she went on to recieve the prize.

Her memorial service is scheduled for Sunday the 4th at 2pm. Anyone is welcome, just let me know if you would like to know where, I just feel wierd putting it on the internet for everyone.

Thanks for all the prayers and love. God answered all of them, just in a different way than we thought. I have so much more to say, but I will update this later when I can see through my tears.

*Quick Edit*
Many have asked what the biopsy showed. My momma had pulmony fibrosis, and it is a fatal disease. It is ultimately what she died from. Her lungs were like "dried sponges" and as hard as steel. She was put on a ventalator to try and save her, but her lungs couldn't process the oxygen. Pulmonary fibrosis is a horrible disease, and is incurable. We believe that she must have had it for years and never knew it. I am glad though, I wouldn't have wanted to know... it would have made life so dramamtic.

I am praying for you and the fam. Mary was such a Christian inspiration to us all. She was an example of love, generosity, and most of all, the unconditional love of Jesus. I will miss her encouraging smile and words of wisdom.
