For Aunt Marion

i know it is a little late at night but i can't seem to stop thinking of my dear aunt marion.
i have looked up a few older posts that i made and thought that you would be interested in seeing what a truly brave person she was.
she has always had trouble seeing but for the last few months, she went totally blind and for the last two months of her life, she could no longer walk and yet when mom golden and i visited her, she rarely complained and we always came away from that visit, feeling glad that we had gone.
quite often we would listen with her to her cd's which her children had got her and we would hear stories of the pictures on the wall.
like mom golden has, so did aunt marion.
surrounding her on every side were tons of pictures of her children, grand children and great grand children..
she will be soooo missed!

update 9:oo am saturday...aunt marion left this earth to be with jesus in heaven....just a few hours ago.....our loss but heaven's gain.

this post is dedicated to my aunt marion who is very ill in the hospital.
she told me a few weeks ago that she heard this song and loved it.
i never got the chance to tape it for her or copy down the words to it and for this i feel so bad

mom golden and her sister aunt marion horton....june 2 2009

My dear Terry,

Just heard about your Aunt Marion and wanted to leave a note. I'll be praying for you and your sweet family. Tried to leave a comment on Passing-thru's blog, too, but it wouldn't go thru...hope this reaches you. Sending a big hug {{Terry}}

Thank you for your latest comment at my blog, informing me of your Aunt Marion's homegoing. Oh, I am sure you are all so sad, esp Mom Golden, but Aunt Marion has lived a full life.

Praise God for her bravery even up to the last few hours of her earthly life.

Dearest Terry,
I'm just home from visiting my mother.
You know I have been praying.
Now I will especially pray for your mother, your aunt's children and yourself.
You have been the nicest and most considerate niece ever.
I pray for strength in the days to follow and also for Dad Golden.
That this may touch him in a special way.
You all have my deep-felt condolences.
Yours Felisol
