~Sleep in heavenly peace~
Aunty died as she had lived…with perfect and utter love!
My darling Aunty passed away peacefully in my arms Friday evening November 18th. She was loved and adored right into eternity. It was the most sacred and intimate experience of my entire life. She was surrounded by pictures of her beloved family, including her late devoted husband, daughter and parents. The only light in the room was the twinkle of the Christmas tree, the flickering angel, and the glow of the evening peace candles. After I had anointed Aunty in lavender oil, with the sound of soft Christmas Carols in the background, including Silent Night (her favorite song) I turned on some lush lullaby music and sat by her side. I started to tell her again about how much I loved her and how thankful I was for all she has done for me and for several generations of our family. She smiled from her bed and opened her eyes. No one ever loved me as much as she did in that moment. I told her I would write a book about her. I assured her I would be okay. Then, knowing she had missed her family immensely, I told her that her husband, and daughter and all her brothers and sisters were waiting. She smiled again. She held my hand. I rubbed her head. I put my head on her pillow. We were eye to eye. I held her hand. I held her head then I laid down beside her. After I told her all the beautiful truths about her life (which I knew would to allow her to pass peacefully, gracefully and courageously) she slowed down her breathing. She looked at me with utter love from God himself and breathed her last few breaths. It was intensely and profoundly spiritual and will sustain me for all my days to come. It completed her journey here in the physical sense, but, she is ever present. I take enormous comfort in her divine death. I feel like a midwife to her soul. I helped her ease into eternity with all the love in my heart and soul, with every bit of my being! I write all these words here, but no mortal words can truly express what transpired that wondrous evening. Exactly as I had predicted…her last breath went right into me and now I shall continue Aunty’s legacy of pure love.
She was compassionate to every living being, She forgave all who harmed her, She gave to everyone in need on many levels. She comforted the sick and dying before her. She lived to give, and gave all she had and even more. I will do my best to uphold such a high standard of human being-ness. As always, for Aunty I can and will do anything. I now have a flock of golden angles…with my precious baby girl at the helm and always by my side and in my heart. I will do great things in her name. Amen.
I saw to it that Aunty had a glorious wake, funeral, and out of this world burial. I am receiving countless emails about it. Stay tuned for more on how to create a perfect ending to life here on earth. Good stuff for sure….
