It's been a year since we said goodbye. I can't wait to say hello, Mom! 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

Ps - This verse did not all post: 1 Thessalonians 4: 13 - 18 13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

It's Mother's Day Today, May 14, 2023. My mom looked forward to a corsage every year to wear to church. Then it woud sit in her refrigerator in its plastic case until she had to throw it out. I think she actually wore those several Sundays. It was always this important thing I felt compelled to do along with what ever gift and dinner were planned. She always seemed to like that the best and would light up when she got it. I never thought a Mother's Day would come that she wouldn't be here. People who know me, know I'm never short of words. Never brief. Barely concise. Always one to write memories on these kinds of pages. I thank everyone here for their kind words and loving memories months ago. I wanted to thank you then. But this whole thing was very hard for me, in every way, that I couldn't even begin to write here. The heartache was crippling. I won't dwell on that part. I will tell you how true Psalms 34:18 is: The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. He did! The Lord surrounded me night and day. He sent messages through many people who knew my mom to cheer me, to make me smile, to feel her love and his! How healing, I praise Jesus for this! I will tell you my mom said this frequently: 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. She believed this, and so do I. This truth made her absolutely fearless. Death was no threat or a thing to fear because she fully knew the minute she left her body she would be right there in the presence of Father God on His throne and Jesus to His right hand on his throne too! Who could fear that moment? I don't either. Thank you for that guidance, mom! I will tell you, if you didn't get to say goodbye, that it is far more important to ready yourself to be able to say hello! We both believe the Holy Bible is the living word of God! Jesus is the Word! Therefore I I share the Gospel of salvation with you so that you will ready yourself to see her, if you haven't already! Imagine the joy she and my dad will have when they see us again! How? 1 Corinthians 15 King James Version 15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve So you come as you are, right here, right now, and you believe on Jesus. You believe he died on the cross for you, was buried, and after three days was resurrected. You believe in the power of his healing blood to wash you clean as snow, and to make your sins as far away as the east is from the west. Then you are saved and in the family of God! You are sealed by the Holy Spirit and ready for redemption - either when you die, or, when this occurs - harpazzo! Rapturo or the rapture of the church: "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:" 1 Thessalonians 4:16 KJV Me and my mom spent hours talking about this event! We would end phone calls with maybe I'll see you in the clouds tonight! We anticipated His return, and we looked up daily. This is real and it's coming soon. I stand for Jesus, so did my mom. It was her wise council that helped me grow in Christ Jesus the last three years. How I'm full of joy when I think of looking at her hand holding mine, walking into the Church. How I sit in comfort at church now, when I think of her next to me there. How I smile, when I see her smiling and nodding, at the second service when her favorite song was sung by the Pastor, "I Have a Mansion." How I smile when I see her later on at home tearing up Kentucky Fried chicken! That was what she wanted frequently for dinner after church, with Chinese a close second. How I will remember always hugging her goodbye and never wanting to let go. She would squeeze me harder then, like she knew what I thought. I really believed she would be here for the soon coming rapture, but now, she is at the head of the line. I'll still see her on the clouds when Lord Jesus soon returns for us. The prophetic time piece is Israel - watch the events. All the prophecy is being fulfilled as I write; all the events are converging that Jesus said would happen. What an exciting time to be alive! I boldly speak these things me and my mom talked about and believe because they are true! Anyhow, I share all of this because it mattered to my Mom. It is what she believed. It's who she was. And in being a child of God, what seeds she planted and what a true legacy she left! Thank you for that, Mom! I'll see you on the clouds soon!

I will share one of my fondest and most memorable things regarding my Grandma Marriott. As a child I always enjoyed collecting sport cards. I guess I liked it to the point grandma took a little interest, at least in famous players at that given time. With that being said she bought several Sammy Sosa and Walter Payton cards for me back when the Marquette Mall had card shows. I still have those cards in mint condition and will keep them forever. Guess this is very meaningful because cards of all sorts still interest me quite a bit. Thank you for that, the great meals and desserts for years on end, even the sit downs and long conversations we had over the past 5 years when I’ve been at the toughest moments in my life. I love you and have respect for you. You were an independent person/lady until your last day! Also I know you were proud of me and knew I could single handedly overcome anything. I love you!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Sending Deepest Condolences to my Cousins Mike, Lori and family during this time of Loss. The last time I saw Aunt Barbara was many years ago with your Uncle Bernie and Aunt Jackie after your Dad passed, and Aunt Barbara was so happy to have us visit. I am sure that now she is Happy to be home with Grandpa and Grandma Ferro, her brothers and sisters and all of our other relatives. God Bless You all, I am sorry I won't be able to be with you, but I will be thinking of you and Aunt Barbara in the days ahead.

I love you. I always loved coming over and sitting at the kitchen table and listening to you talk, and going to church with you when I was little is one of my favorite memory’s.
