For Laurel

Postby different glory » January 25th, 2017, 11:34 am

An older woman - 90s, I guess - and a staunch Christian,. Her life is currently drawing to a close. She is unafraid, and indeed happy to give her life into God's hands. Still, please pray - for her, for good medical care, for the family, including unresolved tensions. Thanks.

Yes, I will pray for Laurel.

Thank you. She was a fine example of a dedicated Christian. Not without her flaws but very straightforward. I loved her immensely. Thank you for prayers and most especially for my husband who feels to be the black sheep and my youngest son who has had difficulties lately.
God bless!

I will pray for you and your family Sweet Peace, today at morning Mass.

I know SP is grateful for your prayers, Lyn and Pondy. Laurel's funeral is tomorrow, Friday - so if you feel like continuing your support...

Oh yes, that all goes off well. I've no doubt it will.
A miracle would be some healing for anyone at the funeral who has guilt feelings about their lives, I believe that could happen. A funeral can be a great occasion for reconciliation.

RIP Laurel (I like the name). How wonderful to die at a very old age leave so many happy memories behind.

Hi Lyn. I did post here and on the thread Rose started about being a Christian but my posts have vanished. :(
The funeral was a good mixture of warmth and solemnity. People spoke so fondly of Laurel, and one person had the whole room laugh at his relating to how fierce Laurel could be -once a couple of men approached Geoff (my FIL) and suggested that perhaps it wasn't appropriate that his wife sat embroidering through the long sermons or teachings. Geoff replied, would you like to take that up with Laurel?
There were about 200-250 people attending. The chapel at the Lutheran nursing home was just big enough. The service was followed by a cuppa and then a picnic for the family at the same parkland reserve where we celebrated my MIL's 90th birthday four years ago.
Thanks Lyn and Pondy and all who prayed.
