Saying Goodbye is Never Easy

On June 7th, we got the call that the person I have affectionately called mom mom Bella on here before was entering hospice care. We had just returned from Wisconsin only two to three short days before.  On June 8th, my kids and I got on he Amtrak to go and have whatever quality time with her that God would allow.

Many things happened during the course of our time there, and I hope to share more about that in the upcoming days or weeks.  The short of the story is that Belinda Reed was a wonderful mother figure to me...and a beyond exceptional grandmother to my children, (and if you know our story) she didn't have to be. Though we had some quality time before she passed, my heart still broke at the news that he earthly life ended early morning June 20th as the kids and I were traveling back to Jacksonville on the Amtrak.  She had no doubt that her soul would would be with Jesus.  We talked about that alot.  I know she loved dearly the family she leaves behind. She fought a long hard battle with Ovarian Cancer for at least 4 years. Life won't be the same without her, but I am glad she is free from the pain.


  1. I am so very sorry. My heart and prayers are with you and the family.. SO very sad.
    I am happy , you were able to go and spend some time with her.

  2. Sorry for your loss. Glad you were able to go see her and have quality time. I know you all will hold her memory in your hearts.

  3. Thank you all for your kind words. They mean alot!

  4. Sorry for your loss. It is awesome to know she is with Christ. Take comfort in that. Hugs to you.
