Michael’s Facebook post said that “This morning our mom passed away. She laid peacefully in her bed with family by her side. Momma loved her bed and her house. It was just where she wanted to be. The love Mom was surrounded with was incredible. Not just that of the family but from her nurses, sitters and the wonderful ladies from Hospice. There are so many kind people in this world. I’m thankful for all of them.”
He went on to discuss how lucky his family was to have her. She was a wonderful mother and everyone in the family clearly valued her.
The brothers are very appreciative of all of the prayers and they are finalizing the memorial details.
