In the arms of Jesus


My mother passed away peacefully last night. She received the Last Rites and Communion a few hours before her death, and had family with her. She wore her brown scapular, and died with her Rosary in her hand. Please pray for her soul. There will be a Traditional Requiem Mass for her on Monday.

:( but you have painted a beautiful image of her and it does sound like "a happy death." I will pray.

My deepest sympathies for the lost of your dear mom. I lost my grandmother this past March, so I know your pain all too well.

I have prayed for your mom. Hang in there and drop me a line if you need to talk to someone.
