My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Chantillie. Your mother and I had many spirited discussions over the last few months. I never doubted her devotion to Jesus. I trust she is now safely in the presence of Him and the other saints who have crossed from this life to the next.

Annie,

I lost my Mother to a stroke on Mother’s Day, 99. A bit bittersweet until I realized it was 41 years to the day after my father’s plane went down. It actually makes me smile when I think about it now.

You and yours will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

One true soldier of the Church Militant has joined the Church Triumphant. The Free Republic is not the same without her posts.

Lord Jesus, we beseech Thee, rest the soul of Thy servant Judith Anne with the saints.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, in the company of angels and saints we pray, amen.

With Grace she left this world, and she is no longer afraid.

We now turn to prayers for those left behind.

I know that you will see her again someday..and until then, live each day and share your joy with her just as you did when she was with you.

I join in these thoughts and prayers and trust in God our Savior.

FOR OUR DEARLY LOVED JUDITH ANNE

May angels lead you into Paradise;
may the martyrs receive you at your coming
and lead you to the holy city
of Jerusalem.
May a choir of angels receive you,
and with Lazarus,
who once was poor,
may you have eternal rest.
Amen.

I am so very sorry. This must have been hard for you to share with us, but you have touched my heart deeply in keeping us updated and allowing us to share Judith Anne with you and your family. I will miss her and will keep you and your family in my prayers as you adjust to her absence.

My sincere condolences to you and your family.

I lost my father a year ago to a brain tumor, so I understand a little bit about what you are going through at this time.

Big ((hugs)) to you and your family. Let the tears flow and allow yourself some time to just let things ‘be’ at home. It is such a stressful time. Don’t take the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Your mother was one special lady. God bless her soul and may He give you peace and comfort in the days ahead.

I am truly saddened at the loss of such a fine lady. Over the years I have enjoyed her wisdom and comments. Her heart and soul came through on her writings, now undoubtedly she is in Heaven with our Creator and her loved ones that have passed before her. I am honored to have met her even if it was on a website. May God Bless Ms. Judith Anne and her family. God bless you, Chantillie, for allowing us to express our gratitude and appreciation of this wonderful woman’s life.

We have many good gals and guys at this site. I guess what I wrote just seemed appropriate for Judith Ann's daughter. So many of us here can sense her deep loss.

Dear Chantillie and family of Judith Anne,

We are grateful for the many years of companionship shared here by so knowledgeable a mind and generous a heart as your mother’s. So much did I respect her opinion, that I kept her posts bookmarked, and shall retain that bookmark in its place for as long as there is a Free Republic.

Chantillie... you, your mother, and your family are in my deepest thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing with us, and for including us, in the watch over your mother during such a profoundly sad time in your lives. God bless and keep you all.

“Eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, what God has in store for those who love Him.”

I ache in looking over the posts, realizing how my words were misunderstood, and as such caused confusion-
In the update I had said that her body remains with us, but her soul has gone to heaven-
Her body continues to breath, however the CT and EEG have confirmed the encompassing damage. At present, the only portion functioning is the brain stem (which controls the basic life functions of breathing, heart beating)- we remain by the side of her bed, and will stay until the last breath is finished.

How does a person say sorry for a misunderstanding such as this? lack of sleep, lack of focus, the desire to keep friends informed and failing to convey a message the way intended - i dearly apologize!

Under the circumstances, you have no need to apologize. Some folks just didn't read carefully enough.

You don't owe anyone an apology, friend.

Don't trouble yourself with that; you have enough going on.

Please know that many of us are with you in a spirit of love and compassion.

My God bless you and your mother and may He hold you both close in His loving arms.

My condolences to you. This is a very difficult time.
And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations.

He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken.

It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” Isaiah 26

(Part of what I requested be read at my mother's funeral. Four years ago, at Christmas, she was a few weeks from dying, and none of us realized quite how little time she had left. Nor, sadly, do I think she was really ready for it.)

Chantillie,

Your mother had a very strong faith in Jesus Christ and please know “He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” ( Philippians 1:6)
She is safe in the arms of her Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I will miss having an ally on the religious threads. You mom sent me a private mail on 11/27 stating she was staying off them for Advent as she thought they were getting “too hateful”. It’s a pity she was not able to read the posts in this thread, as they have moved me to tears and i think they would have moved her as well. Beautiful comments and prayers were offered not only from her fellow “papists”, but also from non-Catholic Christians who as one poster put it, had “spirited debates” with her over the years. I think it’s a great tribute to your mom and her strong faith that she was able to bring us all together.
Reading the comments from posters from various faith backgrounds has brought home the point to me that if we are going to spend eternity in heaven, maybe we should show more Christian love to one another here on earth.

i will keep you and your family in my prayers during this tough time. God bless you.

Tom

Chantillie,

Your Mom is resting, at peace. Soon she will be actively rejoicing in the presence of our Lord. Forevermore.

I could try and comfort you, but there is no comfort. I will not lie to you, this is a very difficult time. It is also a time filled with wonder and beauty. Because from now on your Mom will live in two places, in the Presence of Our Lord and at the same time in your heart.

Every time you remember her words of wisdom she lives in your heart. Every time you act in accordance to the values she taught you, she lives in your heart.

What you posted above proves God’s Perfect Love for Judith Anne. As you described the effects of the series of strokes, you showed God’s Hand, one by one shutting down her awareness on this side so that her Graduation from time into Eternity is free from any pain or discomfort. Be assured, God will also find a way to comfort your heart and bring Peace to you.

My Dear, Sweet Chantillie,

May the Peace of Christ envelop you and hold you while you go through the grieving. As one who lost a husband (Sionnsar) earlier this year I offer prayers for your comfort and the comfort of all your family at this time. May your heart be flooded with the warm and wonderful memories of your sweet mother who was to many of us a light in the darkness. As you adjust to life without her physical presence, may you experience the ineffable joy of knowing she is with God, His angels and all the saints who have gone before. Her welcome in Heaven is tremendous. And so will ours be when our time comes to cross Jordan. Blessed in the eyes of the Lord is the death of His saints. And may He give you the oil of joy for mourning.

“realizing how my words were misunderstood”

Our family went through this with my mother-in-law, the same type of stroke and the same results; brainstem functioning only.

It’s exhausting and stressful dealing with the grief. Just focus on what you need to do for yourself and your brother and relatives and don’t worry about being correct.
