In Loving Memory


Muriel passed away this morning at approximately 1035am. She is now resting peacefully in the arms of Jesus, no more pain, no more weariness. We are all better people for having known her.


God Bless you Muriel!!!! Thank you for giving me the ultimate gift, your wonderful son Doug. We will all miss you very much.
Hugs,
Amy

  1. Oh Amy, I just saw your update post and then this one. I am so very sorry for your loss. From your journal notes it sounds as if she was a lovely woman and you were a big blessing to her. God bless you all in the coming days.

  2. Amy, I have been checking back all day, knowing you would post this but it still breaks my heart to read it. I pray for comfort for you, your husband and your boys, but also pray for peace knowing she's having a grand ol' time up in heaven. From your posts, you can tell how she has blessed your lives and I know you did the same to her. She's probably telling everyone up in heaven about you all right now. Hugs to you all.

  4. praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God all comfort, Who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. for just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

    i sense you are at peace, even though you are experiencing great grief. hugs from GA...

  26. May God's sweet love and tender mercy bring you peace and comfort at this difficult time. May the happy memories of Muriel fill you with smiles even during such a difficult time of goodbye ... rejoice in knowing you will be reunited in heaven. My heart reaches out to you all - especially to a husband losing his love and to the children losing their momma and to the younger ones losing a special grandmother.

  28. no more pain for Muriel - I'm sure she is rejoicing in her glorified body. I can't help but have a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye; as one who's lost both parents I know what this loss is like-my heart goes out to Doug & the rest of your family I know it's hard on those who will miss her.

  55. I have read through the last few entries, and as I sit here weeping as I type. I only wish that when it is my time to go I will have an ounce of courage that Muriel has shown and witnessed to me. She reminds me of my grandmother who knew it was her time to go and that there was something bigger and more grand waiting to welcome her. I wish you and your family peace in your heart and I pray that God will give your children strength through this difficult time. May peace be with you and sending lots of cyber {{{{hugs}}}} your way.
