Goodbye to my Mother-in-Law

Today's posting is dedicated to my dear Mother-in-Law.  Darlene  Scott (nee Patrick)On Friday, January 7, 2011, Roxie Darlene Scott went home to be with the Lord.  She had been suffering with COPD for about 8 years.  During the last couple of years we have been in the process of that "long goodbye" as she slipped further from us with Alzheimer's. 

She went to the hospital in early December, was there for two weeks, and then on Christmas Eve was transferred to a nursing facility.  The final two weeks there in the nursing home were difficult, so we knew things were beginning to come to an end. 

The family that she left behind... 2 sons (2 daughter-in-laws); 5 grandchildren; and 5 great grandchildren, will truly miss her smiling little face.  She had been a widow since 1984, and especially enjoyed time with her friends and family.

We are so thankful that Mom was a born again Christian and loved the Lord.  We know that as she slipped from her earthly body she was immediately in the presence of the Lord and was rejoicing with friends and family who were awaiting her arrival.

Today is the viewing, and there is a snow storm hitting us right now.  Family and friends are traveling here right now, so we ask for prayer - that they may have traveling mercies.  Also, a number of people - including myself - have the flu right now,  We would appreciate it if you would keep our family in prayer during the next couple of days.
