mom (Judy Coleman)


My mom went home to her savior today, June 21, 2008. She will be missed by many. She was the type of person who would do anything for anybody. Even her doctor and nurses fell in love with her at Sloan. I don't have to question why she went home because I rest assured that Jesus wanted to release her from the grasp of the disease she has been fighting for the last 3 months or more. I also know that Jesus brings home many soon who are special to him. Please pray for my family and especially my dad who is having a very hard time. This picture is of one of my mom's happiest times ever. We are in Hawaii and it is my daughters baby shower. It is 2004. Hawaii is a place mom always wanted to go and she came, many times. My dad is the one wearing the football jersey and my mom is next to him. Vanessa (my daughter) is next to her and her sister Kira (the mom to be) is next, and then my son-in-law Cesar is next with Dominic Jr. on the end. That's me in front of my mom with my son Damian. As you can see the pink balloons are for my daughter who is having a daughter. Turns out she had a boy who now has pictures of his girlie baby shower. This was a fun day for my mom and the rest of us.

I know she is walking with my savior at this moment and there is no place I can think of that is better then this.

I'm sorry for the loss of your mom, but how exciting she is in heaven with Jesus. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family...especially your dad. I can't imagine losing my spouse or my mom. Rest in His comfort.

Just out of curiosity...is your dad a Christian?

Christina,

I'm so sorry. Losing a parent is hard. It just stinks! She's free of her cancer ridden body, but you still have to go on.

I'll be continuing to pray for you as you start this new journey.

Sandra said...

Chris, I'm so sorry, I have kept her in my prayers and just like Jen, I was not expecting this.

I'll keep you and the rest of the family in my prayers as you go through this hard time. Hang in there sweet friend.

Hugs,
Sandra

She is definitely at peace and in the arms of Jesus right now Chris. Take comfort in that she is in a beautiful paradise resting without pain or illness.

MATTHEW 5:4

Your friend always,

(((Christina))) I know this is not going to be an easy time for you and your family. The peace of knowing that your mom is with our Heavenly Father is a great comfort and I will continue to pray for your family.

Cheri said...

So sorry to hear of your mother. I'm so glad that you are leaning in to your heavenly Father at this time, knowing that your mom is standing next to him. That image has to bring a smile to your face.
I will pray for your family at this time and if you need to talk you know where to find me.

I am so very sorry for your loss sweetie. I know how hard this loss is having lost my own momma in 2006. But, praise God your mom is disease free now. She is dancing all over heaven. You will be very much in my prayers.

So sorry to hear about your mom. I know it comforts you to know she is with Jesus, but the hole in your life here still hurts.

Christina,
I have been trying to get over here to comment since I got your comment on Saturday telling me about your mom but this week has held a few distractions (Spencer' seizure and hospital trip). I have been thinking of and praying for your family. I'm so sorry for your loss but am thrilled for your mom's gain. How marvelous to finally meet our Savior face to face. I will continue to lift your family especially your Dad up. Blessings to you.
