My brother, Mike and I want to thank you for your prayers for our Mom, Emmy Lou Andrews. She died last night in the presence of friends and family.
We are confident that Mom was ready to go. She had said when she got the cancer diagnosis that she was at peace with the Lord and attentive to his will. The doctors talk of a physiological transitioning. But we know that Mom has been in the midst of a spiritual transition, and that her death is a passage to a fuller and greater life in the presence of the Source of life. We mourn her passing, but we also give thanks for the gift that she has been to all of us.
We value your prayers still as we make our way to Texas in preparation for her funeral.
