In Memory of Mamma K.

In  Memory of Evelyn Kelly, truly a beloved Mother, Grandmother and Friend.

My husband’s mother passed last night. She was ready to leave. I keep thinking of a line from a movie “A lady always knows when it’s time to leave”.

I believe she is in the arms of Jesus today, surrounded by her husband, and her two grandchildren –Steven and Jessica. They are in that place created by God where there is no more suffering or sorrow or tears.

We spoke Jesus to these that we loved and now they see Him face to face. This can be a time of sorrow but for me it is another “splat! right into the wall” moment, to know they see what I can only speak of and wait patiently for . I choose the hope of Christ!

This is her pictured with my husband and our mini-doxie Kara on the Washington coast taken a few years ago. It was a perfect day.

  1. May the ministry and comfort of the Holy Spirit be your portion at this time. How blessed we are to have a hope and yet letting a loved one go before hurts and leaves a hole in our hearts and lives. May you cherish the precious memories until you are reunited in heaven.


  2. There is always sorrow at the passing of a loved one M’kayla. How blessed that you mother-in-law knew Jesus and is now in His presence. I think of the song”I can only imagine”. She now knows. May the God of all comfort be with you with the comfort only He can give.


  3. We appreciate all of your beautiful words for they are the truth of our Lord. On behalf of the Kelly family, thank you for your love and prayers. I continue to believe and pray for the entire family to come to know the Lord. For in Him -in the forgiveness of sins -there is found true purpose, peace and joy in all things.

    2Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with wich we ourselves are comforted by God.


  4. To be with our Lord truly is the blessed hope. Thank God we do not have to mourn as those who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.

    Praying you will be comforted with this promise.

    Beyond the sky
    Beyond all telling
    The Father Himself will be our light
    Hims arms will hold us
    And with His hand
    He’ll wipe away the tears that stain our eyes
