It is with sad news that I report on the passing of longtime FReeper Carolinamom.
Her daughter notified Howlin this morning and told Howlin that her sister found their sweet mother Carolinamom (Miriam) this morning on the bathroom floor.
Her daughter told Howlin the neighbors said she had on the same clothes that she had on when she was working in her yard yesterday.
The medical examiner said Carolinamom may have died from a heart attack or stroke and said she didn't appear to have suffered the affects, and died peacefully.
She touched the lives of many here and elsewhere. She was a sweet and caring soul.
Please keep her closest friends and her immediate family in your thoughts and prayers today and in the days and years to come. Her daughters will certainly need the comforting prayers and loving embrace of our Lord and Savior. They're devastated this morning.
This thread is a beautiful tribute to such a loving woman. Hold her close to Your heart, Precious Lord.
I lost a grandfather in much the same way in 1984. It was a day like any other day and just like that, his heart stopped and he was gone before he even hit the sidewalk.
Sad news. Prayers up for Carolina mom’s family.
Oh how sad. Prayers for her friends and family
Deepest condolences to the family and friends of Carolinamom. She is now in peace and in God’s arms. I pray that God will give Carolinamom’s daughter’s strength and courage during this terribly sad time. Having lost my dear Mom not too long ago, I understand the devestation. My heart and my prayers go out to Carolinamom’s daughters.
May she rest in peace and God bless her and her family.
Carolinamom will be greatly missed here on Free Republic.
You might want to ping the Sunday Thread on this because I’m sure I’m missing a number of people who would like to comment.
RIP...we lost a great one. Prayers for her soul.
Thank you for posting this thread and sharing this sad news. Carolinamom was such a dear, lovely lady and I am going to miss her sorely. She had a great sense of humor and was a delight to “know” on the internet.
Prayers lifted for her family and loved ones.
Sounded like a great human being...much like my mom. God Bless her.
May God rest her soul
Thank you for sharing this, Miss Marple.
I like to think of the joyful reunion she is having with her beloved husband and dear friend Bahbah right now.
It sure is hard on those of us left behind though.
This is so very beautiful. Thank you for posting it.
Prayers up for her loved ones.
May she rest in peace. Prayers for her and her family.
Prayers up for Miriam’s family. It sounds as if she had a very peaceful death,doing someting that she loved to do.
May she rest in peace with the Angels and the Saints!
(Good time of year to pass on into the Communion of Saints, with All Saints Day coming up on Monday and All Souls Day on Tuesday.)
Please say prayers for Carolinamom!
Prayers for her family and friends.
Prayers from CT. God bless her.
Miss Marple, thank you, I didn’t know all that Carolinamom had done. I was also thinking about Bahbah’s passing such a short time ago, too.
I will miss her terribly.
God rest her soul.
Such sad news. Prayers for her family and friends
She was the one who convinced me to write my book. Such a loss and prayers for her family and friends. Going to miss her on Sunday Thread.
I seldom visit FR anymore and just when I do, I find one of my favorite posters has passed. Blast it all.
May she find comfort in the arms of our Lord.
this post of yours was surely uplifting, it anything uplifting is positive in this scenario
I just had my mom’s funeral & am truly more upset over this.. we had planned to meet for lunch in a couple weeks when I went to NC
I hope you are well. I am saddened that you & Mr. Marple have the separation. I wish it were different as we ALL know that life gives us quick reappraisals .. just as in Meriam
johnny.. miss you sweetie.. I truly do
Amen to that Faith!
Oh, I’m so sorry. We had a number of pleasant exchanges. May she rest in peace.
Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
