Jo Ann has Passed

Jo Ann passed from this world on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at approximately 6:50pm EST. She had been sleeping a lot during the day, due to increased morphine. She was comfortable. She opened here eyes and passed very peaceably on to the next world.

I am fine with this. We said our goodbyes on Tuesday when we had a few moments alone. It was a melancholy moment that is forever etched in my memory.

Thank you to all who prayed that her passing would be gentle. It was. May she rest in peace. On day we will see each other again.


  1. God bless you my friend. Praying for you, and for Joann's family. I love you.

  2. Thanks Mary - I was wondering how she was. Glad she passed peacefully. Praying for the family.

  3. In the long run, passing in such a pain free [from morphine helping], peaceful way is a blessing. I had a moment to check with my reader and saw your post on JoAnn....

  4. Losing a beloved friend or family member is always a very difficult time no matter what the circumstances may be but in this instance I do think you were a wonderful friend and a blessing to Joann as she made her way to a new home and a much better place. I'm glad you and she had a chance to share a few last times together to allow your feelings to be known, each to the other. Also, knowing she passed peacefully is another blessing though, isn't it?

  5. Mary,

    Thank you for letting us know. It is a blessing that JoAnn passed peacefully. I'm glad you and she had a chance to say goodbye. You and her family are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care, my friend.

    Love and hugs,

  6. Just stopping in to check on Jo Ann... How bittersweet for you.. I am thankful that she slipped away in peace. How compassionate is the Father God... Praying for you and her family. I remember when Jean died just a little over a year now. We were the best of friends..... Heaven is much sweeter now with our friends keeping watch.........


  7. Dear Mary, I am so sorry to hear of Jo Ann's passing but it's a blessing to know that she is no longer suffering and is now in a much better place. I'm glad you had a chance to say your goodbyes to her, that can give you a lot of comfort. Thinking of you. xoxo

  8. I'm so sorry your friend has passed. Even though we know we will meet again there is such a void now.
    When you see her next, you will never have to say good bye again.

  9. Mary-I'm sorry for the loss of JoAnn-but I am thankful she was in peace-and that you are o.k. too.

  10. I am very sorry for the lost of your good friend but and thankful she did not suffer in those last hours. Peace be with you and may reflect on all the happy times you had together.

  11. (((hugs)) I know that her peaceful passing comforts you and I also know that you will miss your friend.

  12. I am sad you have lost your friend to cancer.
    You seem to have managed all of this well. You did manage to say your last goodbye's. Such moments are precious.

    I know your Faith is a source of strength and understanding for you. Your friend will always linger is you memory and your life.
