This afternoon, October 8, at 5:15, Mary Evelyn’s sweet spirit went to be with our Lord. Mark, Thomas and I were with her and we each spoke to her. I kissed her sweet face near her right ear and told her that her guardian angel was coming to take her to heaven and that she would see my momma. I told her to tell my momma that Thomas and I miss and love her. I told her that all the saints who have been praying for her would be happy to see her and that they would all love her.
She died within a minute with her family surrounding her with love and prayers. She is free now. All day, we have surrounded her with prayer and psalms. After her death, our family prayed the Trisagion prayers over her as well as other beautiful prayers for her as she went to heaven.
We are grateful for God’s gracious mercy that He gave her to us and we were able to be blessed by her sweetness for eight precious years. She left this earth with a pure, beautiful soul that can never be sullied. She will be a joy in heaven and we will wait until in God’s grace we can rejoin her.Somehow, we will find grace to live our lives until then.
May her memory be eternal!
