Charlene, Darilyn, and Family -
Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers during this time, which is both sad for those of us left behind, and full of beauty and wonder for your sweet mom as she entered Heaven.
Her Faith in God touched everyone she met; and still radiates through all of you and your tributes to her.
We were especially blessed to have become acquainted with her through Sonshine Fellowship.
Love and Blessings,
Betsy & Stefan Edwards

My siblings and I took turns sitting with mom at night when she got really bad. Sometimes alone and sometimes in pairs. On the last night I sat with her alone, she was having such a terrible time breathing and was just exhausted. Every time she would drop off to sleep she would start coughing which would take her breath away. So I put a movie on my tablet thinking she might nod off. We wound up watching a couple of those Hallmark movies. Then we talked the rest of the night about anything and everything.
When I look back, I believe God gave me that night to be with her... Just mom and me. Talking and laughing. I will cherish it forever.
At one point she had woken up but her eyes were not focused on us. They were focused on things we could not see. We were singing to her and she was glorious, beautiful, reaching toward heaven. I believe we witnessed just a tiny bit of heaven.
I miss her already but I am happy for her too. I am looking forward to joining her one day when God calls.
Mom spoke with everyone while she was able about how important it is to keep Jesus in your life. She was starting a revival right there in her room.
Love you so much, mom.

She is my beautiful mama and my best friend.
This was on our great adventure to see Cameron my son and his beautiful family. We took every road that we wanted to take, if it looked interesting, we took it. We wanted to go visit the Amish village, so last minute we did it. She loved that trip ❤️❤️
She is now on the next great adventure., to see her Christ and her sweetheart again. You will be missed mom
