In Memory Of Rosie Ventresca

this was a very difficult week for my niece amanda and my nephew marco and the whole ventresca family.
amanda is grace's daughter.
her sister-in -law rosie entered heaven in the arms of jesus this thursday.
i was very happy to hear from amanda tonight that rosie accepted the lord as her saviour september 11 this year.
when gracie and i went to see rosie at the hospital the day that she passed away, it was easy to see that rosie, although she could barely speak had no fear, and that there was a sweet peace about her.
amanda was with her dear "sis" when she drew her last breath at 7:30 pm.
amanda had told rosie to walk into the arms of jesus. he was waiting for her and rosie nodded her head, opened her beautiful blue eyes , looked at amanda and did just that.
because rosie was my face book friend, i am putting this lovely song written and sung by kirk talley in as my sunday hymn..

Revelation 21:4And 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.

we love you rosie, little mandy and marco and all of your uncle bernie and aunt terry

Dearest Terry,
You are truly waling in the valey of shadows these days.
I offer my condolences to you and the hurting family.
This early morning the psalm 121 has me given me to send.
Psalms Chapter 121

1 A Song of Ascents. {N}
I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence shall my help come?
2 My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is thy keeper; the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall keep thee from all evil; He shall keep thy soul.
8 The LORD shall guard thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth and for ever.

My very best whishes for you.
From Felisol

It must be so hard on you all saying goodbye to another loved one.

My sympathies for Amanda and her family.

But praise the Lord Rosie accepted the Lord and made her peace with God. That is good news.

Lots of love to you.

It's nice to know that a person has accepted Jesus as her Lord and savior and has surrendered her life to Him before she died. She would be welcomed with an open arms by Jesus. Thanks for the glorious post. God bless you always.
