We received an unexpected phone call Monday night with the shocking news that our dear friend from church, Mrs. B, went to be with our Lord and Savior.Â Mrs. B–a lady who loved to be a part of our church, even though she didn’t live at the nursing home. It all started when both she and her husband were at the nursing home almost a year and a half ago. She was recovering from a fall, but she was soon able to go back home. Her husband still needed care, and she faithfully came up and spent each day with him. Then, her husband was moved to another care location. She loved our church and continued to come every Sunday. After her husband of many years died last spring (and we did his funeral), she still came to church. We always enjoyed her sweet presence. Each Sunday, after church, she would visit the grave of her husband, as it seemed when he died, part of her did too.
It was with shock that we learned that she died unexpectedly around noon Monday. Our hearts are heavy for our loss, but yet we rejoice in that she has gone to be with Jesus! She had wanted us to help with her funeral,Â whenever that time came, but now we are over a thousand miles away. Nathan and Christopher will be doing the funeral service. Please pray for them. The funeral will be today at 1 p.m. CST.
I realized I had a few pictures of Mrs. B on my computer. Please pray for her family, as they grieve, and then especially for Leah, one of the youngest members of our church. She would always sit by Mrs. B. each Sunday, and they had a sweet relationship. Leah is grieving with the rest of us.
