FReeper Carolinamom has passed [Funeral services information at post #224]
October 30, 2010 | BigSkyFreeper

Posted on 10/30/2010 11:20:25 AM PDT by BigSkyFreeper

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.

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.

Oh no. Carolinamom was a real FReeper. At least Heaven's Chapter of FR has another member. She's be with FRiends.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

thanks Krista

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

Prayers up for CarolinaMom and family.

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.
Amen.

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!
