A little while ago, I posted about going to visit my Godmother, who was struggling with cancer.
She passed away this past weekend.
I knew she was very ill…but I wasn’t prepared for it to happen the way it did. I thought I would find her able to speak, that she would recognize me. I thought she would have just a little more time.
She, instead died about half an hour after I arrived at her hospice. I found her to be practically just skin and bones, and she was not responsive at all.
I was able to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for her, en route to the hospice.
I love her very much, and am going to miss her incredibly. She hadn’t ever met my newest baby, and he was with me when she passed. As she was in her last moments, the baby pointed at her and said, “Jsssus, Jsssus…”
I have never been with a loved one before at the moment of their death. I’m glad I was able to be there for her. I wish I could understand redemptive suffering more than I do.
Sorry for the ramble. Could I ask for prayers for this difficult time? Especially for her wake and funeral. Thank you.
