Quick Update

Just wanted to update the blog really quick....after spending almost a week in the ICU on life support fighting for her life, my precious Aunt Phyllis is now resting in the arms of Jesus.  She no longer is hurting.  She no longer is suffering.  She is now with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  What an amazing HOPE we have in that knowledge.  I am sad beyond words.  My family is aching.  BUT we are thankful for the time we had with her, for God allowing us to be with her as she took her last breath, and for the peace that surpasses all understanding. 

Today we will be making arrangements.  I will share more about this past week when I can formulate words that make sense. 

I would like to leave y'all with a picture of my aunt from a dance she went to at her group home on the Friday before she ended up in the hospital on Tuesday.  I am going to miss this sweet, sweet lady!
