Topic: My Mom Helen Louise Whitfield Davis

I would like all of you to know that Helen Louise Whitfield Davis (77)  took her last sweet breath and passed from the arms of her loving family into the arms of her Lord Jesus at 1:43 am on Friday, April 3, 2009.

Harvey, her husband and her two daughters, Pam and Kristi were with her when she died.  It was so beautiful and peaceful with no pain.  Mom simply breathed one time and was gone the next moment.  Mom and Daddy would have been married 58 years on April 27, 2009.

I'll write more later.

Thank you all for being with me every step of this journey.

Smiling through my tears...
Pam

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Dear Pam, You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. How wonderful that you were able to be there with your Mom, at her time of peaceful passing, through her cc journey, and through the many years that  preceded the cancer.  Wishing you strength for the days ahead Pam, and sending many hugs to you.

Dear Pam, I'm so sorry.  You and your family must be reeling when things started happening so fast with your Mom.  What a beautiful loving family.  What more could anyone want than to go peacefully into the arms of our dear Savior surrounded by those that love us most?  I know you will miss her terribly.

Much love,
Carol

Dear Pam, sorry for the loss of your mom but she is not really gone as she lives in your memories and heart. How thankful she must have been to have a daughter like you who helped pave the way for her journey home. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Re: My Mom Helen Louise Whitfield Davis

Dearest Pam, I am so sorry for the passing of your mother, but I am happy to read it was peaceful and her closest family was with her til the end. I am certain it gave your mom great comfort that you were with her until she passed over, just as you have been with her every step of the way with this dreadful cancer. It is a great testament to waht kind of mother she was, because of what a wonderful, loving, and caring daughter your are.  I am also certain there is a void in your life now with your moms passing, but hopefully that will be slowly filled with loving memories of your mom and your life together. You are in my thoughts and prayers

Re: My Mom Helen Louise Whitfield Davis

Dearest Pam,

I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. You really have been a great encouragement to me through your journey. I am sure you are feeling a lot of grief, though you know your dear mom is in a better place with her King. But you have lost your mother and there is no replacing her. I hope things get better with time. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time!

Love and hugs,

Re: My Mom Helen Louise Whitfield Davis

Pam,
I am so sorry for your and your family's loss. I am very glad that she was surrounded by her family and I hope that when my time comes, I am as lucky. You can tell from your posts how much she was loved and what a wonderful woman she was. I will say an extra prayer for her tonight. Remember that you dont have to be so strong now and it might be time to focus on yourself so you have time to digest and heal from the journey as well.

Hugs and warm thoughts.

Re: My Mom Helen Louise Whitfield Davis

Dear Pam-

I hope this message finds you relived in some small way that your Mother knew how much she was loved and that she suffers no more.  We are all small children when we loose our Mom.  Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.  Our best to you and your family at this time.

Re: My Mom Helen Louise Whitfield Davis

Dear Pam,

Please accept my condolences for you and your family.  I am happy for you in the sense that your mom felt no pain, was with family, and it was peaceful but also sad for you and your family. 

Pam, thank you for saying your mom was peaceful and felt no pain.   Although it was hard for you to make this post, it makes those of us who are so fearful feel some peace also. 

Love,
Sophie
