ANGELS WITH AUNTY....

~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….

DEAR RE.YOU ARE WHAT EVERY PERSON SHOULD BE,
AN ANGEL & YOU WERE PRIVILIGED TO CARE FOR AUNTY
WHO IN MY OPINION WAS A BEAUTIFUL,WONDERFUL SAINT
WHO FOLLOWED THE STEPS OF CHRIST TO THE LETTER.
YOU DID IT ALONE. ALL ALONE. AUNTY WAS THERE WHEN
YOU WERE LITTLE & RAISED YOU WITH UNCLE DOM,& YOU
GRACED HER WITH YOUR LOVE & CARE TO THE VERY END.
GOD BLESS YOU RE. C.B.C.& THE HORSES! GGGGG

Dear Renee, so sad and shocked to hear about the passing away of you dear Aunty. May her soul rest in peace. She has lived her life to the fullest and now calls upon us to do the same. I pray that you get stronger and wiser every day with her heavenly presence! So happy that you made her death so peaceful.

Renee, sorry to hear of aunty's passing from this physical world to the spiritual world. Aunty is/was the happiest person to have an incredible niece at her bedside till her last breath. What a way to die, knowing your loved one is talking, watching and holding you in your own home at that precise time. How rewarding and uplifting!!! Your posting reflects THE MAGIC OF A HEAVENLY TRANSENDENCE, and not a sad death. Thanks for sharing such an intimate story and beautiful life. We will miss aunty forever!

What an inspirational message! You have captured the essence and spirit of aunty, not just physically, but spiritually as 'Her last breath went right into me' per your quote. How poetic and symbolical! I know that you will live her legacy of Pure Love. Your Guardian Angel will be watching over, protecting, and guiding you, as you so deserve such an honor and blessing for all of your endless sacrifices, and self-less devotion! May you see her light and feel her warmth! Amen.

God Bless you, Renee. I really understand, and I am so touched and moved by your sharing these precious, sacred moments with us. I am SO GLAD I had the privilege of meeting Aunty, thanks to YOU. She is such a bright light - yes, forevermore. And you, forever transformed and transforming, are an eminently worthy heir to her life breath. I am sad for your loss of Aunty in the physical, even as I know all is well.

I just published a memorial tribute on Love's Freeway as well, and I share it because you might find the music soothing (and/or the poem):

I will hold you in my heart and caress gently as you grieve... and celebrate extraordinary Aunty.

In Sympathy,
