Mrs. B.

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.  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,  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.

Waving good-bye to us last August on our way to Idaho. None of us were able to say good-bye to her here on this earth--we never dreamed she would be leaving us. But, we will see her one day!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. I will be keeping her family and Leah in my prayers. It is beautiful to see the special bond that often develops between children and elderly people. I am glad that Nathan and Christopher will be available to conduct the service. It is such a blessing to be able to mourn with hope.

  3. I am so sorry that you are so far away during this difficult time. Praying for all of you who knew and love Mrs. B.

  4. I remember the photo of Leah and Mrs. B! Wasn’t she one of the ladies who watched the wedding last fall and enjoyed the cake to help celebrate?
    Mrs. B is in peace with Mr B. That is everlasting joy! I am sure Nathan and Christopher did a wonderful job on behalf of the whole family.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss, but know you all are comforted knowing that dear lady is in Heaven. Praying for those who are grieving.

  6. That’s so sad, especially that you couldn’t say good-bye to her! How you must long to be there for her family and everything!!!!! How painful it must be for little Leah! Will pray for all of you!

    Last July, one of our uncles suddenly slipped into eternity to be with Jesus. It was so unexpected!!! We hadn’t seen him for a while, but it was still hard to believe that we’d never see him again here on earth! But we believe that the Lord’s been using his death to speak volumes to some of our unsaved relatives who were close to him.

    Will keep you in our prayers! God bless! Rebecca K.
