Mom's Homecoming

On Wednesday, September 22,
my precious Mom went home
to her Heavenly Father.
We are mourning the loss of her here on earth,
but celebrating her joyful entrance into Heaven!

(My Mom on the left, Uncle Tom peeking though his sisters,
and Aunt Joyce n the right.)

I know that her Mom, Sister, Brother and Dad
were there to greet her with Great Enthusiasm!!!
What an amazing reunion!
Pure Joy

She was a wonderful and very loving Mom.
She will be greatly missed!
I Love You Mom!!!

Dear Joyce, i've lost my mom already too and know how hard it is - for even when we're adult we long for motherly love sometimes. But then, yes, there is a connection that lasts and still reaches us. I'm sure your mom is save and warm!

Dear Joyce, my most heartfelt sympathy is sent to you. My mom passed in 1983 and my beloved aunt in 2004 and still not one day goes by that I do not think of them and talk to them.
I know there is a wonderful party going on in Heaven right now and your mom looks just like she did in that picture, young and vital again!
Hugs and peace to you and your family.

Our loss, truly is His gain.
My Prayers are with you and Sherrie at this tender time...
May you feel His strong arms around you, gifting you with the strength and courage you will need in the days to come.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know the pain all too real...my mom passed away thirteen years ago this month. While I miss her, I know I will see her again. It is just so hard for those of us left behind...focus on your sweet and precious memories. God bless.

Oh Joyce, I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear mum. At least you know she is no longer in pain. Sending hugs your way x

april said...

I'm so sorry, Joyce. I can tell how much you will miss her. I lost my mom 12 years ago and I still miss her terribly and think about her every day. I had this poem written on her memorial card. I can't remember where I found it and I don't know who wrote it, but it said what I wanted to say.

"Of all the gifts I can recall,
my mother's love is the best of all.

I can't repay the lessons
That you taught when I was small,
Or give you, gift for gift,
Each special moment I recall...
I can't return encouragement
And loving words of praise
In quite the way you did for me
Through all my childhood days...
But there's one gift that I can give,
It's all the love you've earned,
For love is what you always taught...
And love is what I learned."

Bonnie said...

much love,
Bonnie

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I'm sorry for your loss of your mom...mine will be gone nine years next month and as the ladies above have already said, I think of her every day. I know though that she is with my dad and brother and so very happy! I will be thinking and praying for you!

Tina said...

Anna said...

Dear Joyce,
They say that the best tribute we can pay someone who has passed is to put ours lives ahead of their death..and celebrate the memories and moments that we were blessed with in this life. I too lost my mother almost 12 years ago now..to cancer..on the 18th Sept..and with Sept being my favourite time of the year as we celebrate Spring here in Australia..it is also my least favourite as I am reminded of her passing..and miss her so much.
Who knows...maybe they might bump into each other in heaven and share a cocktail or two and toast to a life well lived and a family so loved. Thinking of you sweety x

Becky said...

Hugs to you Joyce.Sorry to hear this,always remember her in your heart and then she will be with you always.All the best...becky

Farm Girl said...

I was waiting for my daughter to get home from work (She works till midnight.) The Lord put you and your family on my heart. I am so thankful He does that and I just wanted you to know I have been praying and will continue to pray. As I have learned, sorrow rolls like a billowing ocean and it threatens to just wash you away. But God is there and His still quiet voice can be heard in the tumult. That was the picture I had in my mind as I prayed for you.
I know He is surrounding you and will be with you.
From my heart, I send you my love and my prayers for God's blessings today.
Kim XXXXOOO

Paula said...

Oh, Joyce... I'm crying as I type this.. I'm not crying for your precious Mother, because I know where she is and who she is with, but I'm crying for you and the days ahead without her. Know that you are in my prayers, Sweetie, and that God can and will put his arms around you and comfort you... he did for me when my sweet Mother passed away.

Oh Joyce, I'm so so sorry for your loss. It's so good to know that you can have assurance on where she is. She is in a better place. But I know that doesn't make it any easier for those still here. Keep up the good spirit.
