In Memory of Marilyn Andreasen

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.

    Wow.

    George is in the back yard right now workin’ away just like any other day – and I had no idea it wasn’t just any other day until reading your blog just now!

    Wow.

    I’m at a loss for words.

    I am glad to hear that her suffering is over, that she was surrounded with family and friends at home when the time came, and that everyone got a chance to say goodbye.

    I am sorry to hear that George has lost his mother, sorry to hear of the pain your family must be going through right now, and sorry to know that great people still have to go through great struggles and greif.

    I’m going to go tell George to go home if he wants to go home – or keep working if he wants to keep busy – but I’m glad I read your post before I went out there blindly asking silly questions about our bathroom.

    Lots of love to you and your family. Let me know if I can do anything for any of you, to help out in anyway.

    Suzanne.
