    Well folks I haven't been real active on the board lately. The reason being my mother she went into the hospital on Jan 1 was in and out of MICU off an on, she passed Thursday night at 11.30 pm peacefuly. Her poor old body just couldn't fight it anymore we laid her to rest yesterday. This might sound strange but it was the best funerial I have ever attended.Everyone was giving a chance to say what was on there minds pertaining to how she touched each ones life everything was upbeat without the sobing and crying.Everyone seam to have the same idea of remmebering the good times.
    These past few days I have refelected upon my time with my mother and only can see the good she brought to my life and others. Sure there has been the tears of loss but those times are silenced by the many good memories we all shared with her.And she will live on in those memories.

    Darrell,
    Sorry to hear of your mother's passing. What a celebration in Heaven when the saints are called home!! I'm glad to hear of the "upbeat" service time of memories. That is a testimony to all of you concerning YOUR faith in her destination. May GOD reward each of you for your faith!!
    I'll be praying for you and Debbie, my friend, and hope to see you at Keystone6 this year.
    Remember, MY GOD is an AWESOME GOD!!!!

    Hi Darrell,
    It's good to have you back and posting bro; so sorry to hear the reason for your absence though. You have my sympathy upon the loss of your dear mother. She sounds like she was a wonderful person - and the service reflected that. I recently attended a funeral which was very similar; so your comment about it being the "best" one you've been to didn't seem strange to me. IMO, they should be about celebrating the person's life; and who better to express that than the family and folks she had an impact upon. I'm not much for formality and ritual. I will be thinking of you and yours, and sending up prayers for comfort and peace. Love ya buddy.
    Your BOC sis,
    Tanya

    Darrell - sorry to hear of your loss. And , NO , it did not sound strange. It just shows that the family had a peace in their minds that they knew where their beloved one was going. She is no longer hurting and is rejoicing in the heavens with our almighty father, Jesus Christ.

    I glad to hear that the family and friends could rejoice in all the good times that was shared with your mother. It is my hope and prayer that this brought comfort to each and every one of you. May god bless each of you as you go on with your lives and continue to realize the good times you shared with someone that was so close to all of you! Our god is a great god!!!

    You have my condolences also Elgin. It was a joyous send off when I buried my mother, but I still cried, they started out tears of joy, but soon turned to sorrow. Every one grieves in their own way and time, so just be yourself and it will work out just fine.
