My Mother in Law, Marilyn Andreasen, passed away early this morning. She has been battling diabetes for the last 25+ years and her body finally had enough. She had complete organ failure and was sent home to be with friends and family to pass away with love surrounding her.
I don’t know what to do other than to post about it here. She has donated her body to science so we have no time constraints on a service for her. No rushing around trying to take care of things, eating up the time we would spend thinking about it by keeping busy. Now we have time to think & remember her. Last week her daughters and sisters met with her to discuss her service. The decision was made to have the service a month from now so that family and friends from all over the country (and possibly some danish family members) could have time to make arrangements for travel. It will give us time to mourn privately in our families as well.
She was a mother of 5. A grandmother of 17. A woman of Christ. She is now at peace, no longer suffering in her broken, worn down body.
She will be missed & loved always.
