Yesterday, Daddy was hugging her, just loving on her the way he does, and she said, “You just won’t let me go, will you?” And he told her that absolutely he will let her go, and that anytime she’s ready to let go, she should.

This just breaks my heart. My Wife is going through a similar thing right now, as her Father is terminally ill with cancer and doesn't have long to live.

My prayers go out to the family - this is such a gut-wrenching thing to go through, even for the very strong.

May the peace and comfort of a loving God descend upon Kayak, and help guide her home to her reward.

Heavenly Father we ask that you comfort Kayak and make her way easy, in Jesus name. -- DarthVader

Not to take anything away from what you've said there... I think she'd find it amusing if she were able to read that along with your screen-name. :)

Through the ups and downs of my family's fortunes, you have always been there with words of encouragement, comfort, and faith.

I know that Jesus will welcome you with open arms.

Well done, thou good and faithful servant. I will always remember you and will see you again one day.

Kayak and I signed on to FR in the same week.

Poppyseed, know that you and your family are in my prayers.

I lost my mom three years ago and your comments brought back all the memories that flooded my brain during those 3 months of her illness.

All we prayed for was her to be able to come home. God answered our prayers but took her to her final home.

Oh - read this today while at work. Heart sank. Hiding tears at work. Didn't know. Dear precious Kayak!

Kayak always reminded me to pray - she called me to pray so many times. And now, dear Kay, so many are praying for you...at these moments when you move into the next life - where they say is real LIFE with your precious Savior.

You will soon see the radiant loving face of the Lord Jesus.

What a joy that will be!

What sorrow there is now for losing you in this life - for your dear family. For all of us who will so miss you.

Thanks for sharing your life, your loves, your hope in Jesus Christ, your passion for freedom and righteousness, and your graciousness through this online gathering place.

God be in your dying....and I know He is right there with you and with your beloveds.

Am so glad I reposted the tribute to Kay here, but I'm almost positive daisyscarlett should get the credit for putting it together - I'm not sure how much I helped, unless it was getting the picture of Kay and permission for one of us to profile her.

At any rate, thank you, daisy; you always had a great way of telling a Freeper's story, and times like this I'm especially glad I kept all our threads archived.

The 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’ sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

Oh dear. Heartfelt and tearful prayers for Kayak to go Home quietly and serenely. God bless you, Kayak.

Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

You know, kayak's is the FR homepage I visit the most often in this site, she has my favorite Reagan quote posted in it, and it's easier to just got to her homepage, than to hunt the net for it when I want to use it.

Here it is, one more time...thanks Kay:

"When I began entering into the give and take of legislative bargaining in Sacramento, a lot of the most radical conservatives who had supported me during the election didn’t like it."

"Compromise was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything."

"I’d learned while negotiating union contracts that you seldom got everything you asked for. And I agreed with FDR, who said in 1933: "I have no expectations of making a hit every time I come to bat. What I seek is the highest possible batting average." "If you got seventy-five or eighty percent of what you were asking for, I say, you take it and fight for the rest later, and that’s what I told these radical conservatives who never got used to it." ~~ Ronald Reagan, in his autobiography, An American Life

Mama made it through the night last night. Today she’s been much less responsive, and in considerable pain. We’ve upped her dosage of morphine and her frequency of getting it. Her breathing sounds horrible. She’s virtually comatose. The swelling around her eyes has gone down some, so today she’s looked, around the eyes, more like her old self than she has in months. The lower part of her face is still swollen, but it’s good to see glimpses of my old Mama.

She had an episode of severe pain this evening that had her moaning horribly, and it was so hard to watch. It took a little while for the morphine to kick in, but it did, and she settled back down.

Her blood pressure was lower today than yesterday, her temperature up, her pulse up - all of these are signs of progression toward death. It won’t be long now. I pray for sooner than later, though I’m not sure I won’t regret that prayer when she’s no longer physically with us at all.

Anyway, it’s hard-going here, but I wanted to update you all.

Love to each of you.

I am so happy you archived our thread on Kayak.

Kay was such a joy to work with...she was so humble and could not imagine why anyone would be interested in a thread about her. And she was absolutely adamant that we could not have a photo because she was not "photogenic" so we worked it up with a .gif of a kayak, lol. When she saw the draft of that, she sorta changed her mind and decided to send a photo. And we both assured her that she was very lovely and could not understand why she was hesitant to supply a photo.

At the time of the profile, she had not met many FReepers in person, except for CarolinaMom. She so enjoyed the FReep she did with her and their wonderful encounter with W.

I am very sad that she is losing her battle but know that the Lord will welcome her with open arms. She will be a beautiful angel.

You won't regret it honey. You only want your Mom to be eased of her suffering.We went through the same thing with my father. And yes, it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I'm so glad you are there for her.

Your Mom was a great FRiend to my husband when we were looking at where to buy a business less than a year ago. Yesterday he talked fondly of their exchanges then, FReepmail and on board.

Our family's prayers are with you and yours, Poppy.
