Although I expected this to happen while we were here in Peru, I didn’t expect it so soon. I haven’t spent much time around her since I was a kid but I always remember her as a pleasant, peaceful and happy person. I think the combination of not seeing much since we moved to North Carolina (when I was 10) and being so far away makes this all a little confusing. It’s also a reminder that when we return to the States it really won’t be the same as when we left.
Please pray for my mom and her siblings as they deal with all the preparations and travel to St. Louis for the funeral. Also pray that God may show me how I can best encourage them from here. Also I haven't had to deal with many funerals and I'm still not sure how to handle that, I guess somethings you don't learn or figure out, they only come with experience.
p.s. If I got any of the details wrong, please let me know.
