I would like to thank everyone for their support and prayers during Charlotte’s journey. We appreciate that we have amazing family and friends and live in a wonderful community.
Charlotte has started a new journey. Last night (Tuesday, January 17th) just before the clock struck 10 she passed away peacefully in our arms. She was surrounded by people who love her and was being told about how proud we were and how much she was loved by all. She fought an incredible battle and we take comfort in knowing that she does not have to fight any longer. She is in heaven now, running and jumping like she has never been able to here on earth.
A quote came to my mind as she was passing. Some wonderful scripture? A wise mans words? No. It was from one of her favourite movies, Winnie the Pooh. At first I thought it was something that I wanted to tell her, but after I realized that maybe it was something she wanted to tell all of us.
“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.” ― A.A. Milne
Yolanda came and snuggled in bed with us this morning with a fresh picture she had just drawn. It was Charlotte skipping and jumping in heaven.
A funeral is being planned for Monday, January 23rd for more information please contact either First Baptist Church (250)426-4319 in Cranbrook or Mcpherson’s Funeral Services at www.mcphersonfh.com
