'Bennie' died at home surrounded by her 4 daughters and 1 son (my husband), and her many grandchildren/great grandchildren ranging in ages 6 mos to mid 40's. She fell at home and broke her hip, shoulder, & arm. Per her request she asked that she not be given anything to keep her alive if she recovered from the operation.
My mother in law was so brave during the last week of her life, she made us all feel good about her dying. We all stood around her bed singing hymns and listening to her tell funny stories and sayings making all of us laugh. She praised God to the end until when she finally went into a coma.
One by one as each of us stood before her she gave us her blessing and added a message for each back slid member of her family. She told us that she was so excited to finally be able to see Jesus and all her relatives that have already gone before her.
Bennie was loved by everyone who met her because she was the type of person who was kind and loving never saying anything negative about anyone. She became your mom or your grandma, thats the effect she had on everybody.
She loved God, her Pastor Elms and her family, we always knew that grandma was praying for us no matter what.
I love you 'Bennie' RIP
