My Sweet Mother-in-Law

Today was a very sad day for our family. We had to say goodbye to my husband's mother, Gloria Thomas, aka Nana to her grandchildren. She has been sick for a while with heart disease and respiratory disease, but rapidly declined within the past 6 weeks. She passed away Monday, 3/30 at 1:19 pm. We were all there with her when she took her final breath. Although we are all very sad, we know she is no longer suffering.

Here is a picture of her on her 81st birthday in September of 2008.

Thank you to everyone who offered up a prayer for her to ease her pain and for our family. I really appreciate it.

Thanks for stopping by.
