I'm at my sister's house, her husband's funeral is today. And early this morning she discovered our mom dead on the stairs.
Mom was 87, but in good health for her age. She did have early signs of dementia and was terrified of dying of it the way some of her siblings did, so a quick passing is kind of a blessing. I don't believe she actually died from the fall (no one heard a noise, and it would have been a short fall. ) My guess is she had a sudden heart attack or stroke that caused the fall. By other signs it looks like death came quickly.
Please pray for my sister who is at her breaking point.
I am so very sorry about your mom. I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers, especially your dear sister.
Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to. The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.
Wow - just wow. I so hesitate to even mention the phrase about things like this coming in threes. At least God typically doesn't give us more than we can handle - another good phrase to remember at times like these. I'm sure you are a big help to her - just knowing you from here. So sorry to hear though KML. Glad you let us know and also know you can always come here for any needed additional support.
