I just wanted to let you, and all the wonderful people on this forum that my mother considered her friends, Kattracks, passed away yesterday afternoon. She died peacfully, with her family at her bedside. If you knew my mother, you knew how concerned she was with the welfare of others. At one point in the afternoon, we were all gathered at her bed, reminiscing about her,the good times, and all the good things she had done for others. It was as if she had waited for this moment, when she knew that her loved ones were going to be alright, that she was able to let go, and pass into the care of God. To all that knew her, be rest assured that she is waching over you from Heaven. That is just the way my mother was. She always put the welfare of others ahead of her own.
Everytime my brother, father, or I would leave the house, my mothers last words to us was Be Careful. I asked her one day why she always said this to us. She explained to me that in that one phrase was wrapped up all the prayers, concerns, and love that she had for us, but to explain it all to us as we walked out the door would take too long, so she would just say Be careful. Im glad I asked her what she meant, because from that day on, and everytime she said it since then, I understood who, and what, my mother was.
Thank you all for your prayers and support for her.
Kattracks has asked me to begin a prayer thread for her, the hardest thing I have ever been asked to do.
She has had a very frightening finding on a medical exam that is not confirmed and may be a false alarm, but which requires all of us to uplift her to Almighty God asking for His mercy to spare her life or to give her and us the strength and faith to walk the path He has chosen for her.
More information than that I am not at liberty to disclose.

Good luck Kattracks, we're praying for you.
Our times are in Your hands. We confess that You are the source of all healing, and we place our beloved friend, kattracks, in Your everlasting arms, asking that You restore her completely to good health. Calm her fears just as You calmed the seas. Place in her the confidence that You will not forsake her in her time of need. Send her wonderful friends to keep her spirits uplifted and her heart inclined to You. Help her to pay no attention to bad news, for You are in charge, and in Your eyes, there is no bad news for Your children who trust in You for their every need. Thank You, Father, that You will use for good what was intended for evil. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
I had a scary mammogram over summer...false alarm. Hope Kattracks feels the same relief!
Prayers from our house to yours. May He wrap His loving arms around you.
God be with Kattracks. May her future test resuls come back accurately negative.
Please pray for a fellow FReeper.
Prayers lifted to The Great Healer.
