Oh, bless her heart. She was/is beautiful, Sara. We rejoice with you, and we grieve with you. Aren't you glad that we can grieve with hope because of Jesus.

She is finally home. What a joyous reunion she must be having.

May I say that you really do resemble her. You have the same beautiful smile. :)

Peace be with you and your family Sara.

I am so thankful the Lord has answered your prayers. Were you still there? Isn't awesome to know she is enjoying the blessings of heaven in her glorious robe of white.
I know that you will miss her but the joy you have to know she is know longer suffering and you will see her again in heaven.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but happy for what she has gained!

Face to face with Jesus, can you even imagine how happy she must be?
So glad you were able to be with her for this period of time, what a blessing for you both.
Peace to all of you, may the wonderful memories someday take the place of sadness...

So glad her struggle is over. Absent from the body and present with the Lord!

I KNOW - because I have been there - how mixed the emotions are when someone you love is finally out of pain. Your heart knows that she is TRULY in a better place and you rejoice that the pain is behind her now and her perfect Heavenly body is dancing before her King. But your heart also know that she is no longer with you, and that hurts. That REALLY hurts.

My prayers are with you and your family. But my heart rejoices for her because she is HOME ... and one day, I will meet her too!

Love you!

Sara, so glad you posted this picture of your aunt...what a beautiful lady! You do resemble her! She is finally home with Jesus now and can you imagine how wonderful it is, to be face to face with Jesus? No more struggles for her and I'm sure you are relieved about that! Still praying for you and your family.

What a beautiful lady!!! May God bless, strengthen and encourage you and yours through this time.

The Davidson Den said...

What a tribute you have paid to her over the past several weeks! I can tell God used HER to bless YOU (and, I'm sure, vice-versa) for many, many years.

Beverlydru said...

She will live on in the way you love others as you were loved by her. What a legacy she leaves.

Rachel @ Unexpected Blessings said...

I haven't commented much lately but my prayers have been with you. Praying God's continued peace in your life.

Sara@i.Sass said...

Woot Woot. Party over here, party over there Mary's come home!

Sara,
I know that loss is not an easy thing for us left to live in this world, but I DO believe heaven is partying. I also know that you are strong in faith, a lot stronger then I, I pray that your heart is filled with God's peace.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Just imagine what a wonderful time she is having with Jesus right now! She is so beautiful.

Praying for you, my friend, for peace and comfort during this coming week. Much love....

May HIS comfort and peace belong to you and your family over these next days.
You do have her smile! :)
Thank you for sharing this time with all of us.
GOD BLESS YOU, dear Sara!!
