  1. Thank you, Sherri, for sharing your Mom with the world before the Lord called her home. You are very courageous and very generous. Your Mom was such a beautiful person and I thank and praise the Lord for the beautiful daughter that are. The Lord has blessed you with a massive heart of tenderness, love, kindness, and spiritual fruit too numerous to enumerate. I was deeply touched by your lives. No one in our family has ALS, but my beloved friend has just entered hospice after a 3 year battle with ALS. She lives 400 miles away, but I spent time with her in January. She is 85, still mobile with her walker, still emails me, but hasn’t talked for 18 months and hears everything. She gets very tired now. Her breathing is 30%. I feel that I need to take less of her time and energy so that her immediate family can have more time with her. Praying for her daily keeps me strong in the Lord, and she appreciates every prayer and praise note to the Lord who loves us. He is working all things according the counsel of His Will. Because we are saved, by placing our faith in Jesus, we know that we will be among God’s people who will be worshipping the Lord together around His throne. Keep your faith strong in the Lord, Sherri. Thanks again for sharing your love for your precious Mother.
