That is a whole bunch of days! 31, 081 days equals 85 years and 34 days.
Yesterday morning my Aunt Anna fulfilled all her days here on earth. Aunt Anna was a breast cancer survivor for many many years. Then she was diagnosed with Metastatic Bone Cancer, she has been having chemotherapy treatments for the past several years...they were doing no good and would have to be increased... so three weeks ago she decided to stop treatments and to spend her last days at home. Her only daughter cared for her for a few weeks and a week ago Hospice brought her a hospital bed and comfort care. I spoke with her and she was thankful for the great care her daughter was giving her... she said if it were not for her daughter that she would be in a Nursing home. Very recently her son came home to be with her. So the house was filled with the voices she loved.
One day I took over a shawl for her ( I left the package outside the door), so she could feel the warmth and love from her family...her daughter sent me a photo.
She loved all the colors!
There will be a private family service with a Celebration of Life next summer.
I guess that is the best we can hope for in these Covid times.
My Aunt Anna was a marvelous person...one of my favorite people. Her only living sibling is my Father. My Father is nine years older than her. Are we sad...yes...but happy that her earthly struggle is now over.
Her daughter wrote "Heaven got a little bit brighter this morning. We will miss you Mom."
Job 14:5 A person's days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.
