Another Precious Soul Is Now Home

Yesterday, November 11, 2011, my precious mother-in-law, Ada, made one last journey. She went Home to be with Jesus and her sweet husband, Bill. Ada was 87 years old. She lived a very long and fulfilling life. She was a homemaker. She raised 5 kids and worked the farm with Bill. She was the best cook in the whole world. I'm serious, there isn't anyone who could cook better than Ms. Ada. I wish I had taken more time to talk to her about cooking and a lot of other things. Why is it that we don't make the best use of the time we have with our loved ones? There are so many things that I wish I could ask her. My husband is the baby of the family. It's strange to think now that both of his parents are gone. It's a bit scary, really. I've often thought about what life would be like without our parents. It's like a huge security blanket has been pulled right out from under us. My mother is our only parent still living. I pray that we have many, many more years with her. I know we will see all of our parents again someday.

We love you, Ada. We will miss you every single day, for the rest of our lives.


  1. Sorry to hear this.. we're on our own, all of our parents are gone in the last 10 years. Cherish your mom. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Teresa and Lucy, thank you both for your comments. It's such a sad time and a happy time as well. Sad that she is gone, but happy that she is Home with her husband and happy that she is no longer hurting.
