Several of you have journeyed with us from the time of Mom’s accident here in the DR in January of 2014 and through her subsequent hospitalizations, air ambulance flights and nursing home residence. Mid morning January 29, 2016 she quietly and seemingly without pain finished the fight.
I was in the village when I got the call that Mom was gone. There was a very sweet impromtu memorial service for her as our women gathered around to share their memories of her. One said, “But we have prayed for two years that she would be healed! Why didn’t God heal her?” “He did, ” I replied. “God healed Mamacita and she’s more whole now than she has ever been. She is completely healed.”
This picture was taken by my niece last Christmas day while Mom was talking to me. The pain is great, but the memories are sweet. I have indeed been blessed to be the daughter of Alberta Catherine York.
Memorial gifts have started a scholarship fund for the children and youth of Cercadillo. I believe “Mammacita” would like that.
