"Lucy woke out of the deepest sleep you can imagine, with the feeling that the voice she loved best in the world had been calling her name." --Prince Caspian, C.S. Lewis

Lois E. Nichols:
Born on August 5, 1933
Stepped from faith into glorious sight at 12:25 p.m., June 16, 2010

"Then her face lit up till, for a moment (but of course she didn't know it), she looked almost as beautiful as that other Lucy in the picture, and she ran forward with a little cry of delight and with her arms stretched out. For what stood in the doorway was Aslan himself, the Lion, the highest of all High Kings."--The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, C. S. Lewis

Alice, what a lovely closing thought for your dear mother's life.

Her faith is now sight! And I know you long for the day that you will also get to see... to see her again, completely remade into the perfectly glorious original version of herself. And yet this awful, distorted, ugly ending called death is not what God had in mind when he gave the first breath of life.

Longing with you for the day when all will be put right. I'll be praying for you, dear...

Can't think of a more fitting set of quotes to honor your mom with. Beautiful and touching. Thinking of you and sending warmest hugs your way.

Love you. Loved your mom. I think the party for your mom's arrival in heaven is lasting well into the night. Her body is whole again. And pain-free. And perfect. And no doubt she is singing praises to Jesus right along with a host of angels. A beautiful picture. Love, Alysa

The glowing embers that Lois has lit over a lifetime, will warm our hearts with memory.

"We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye...."
---1 Corinthians 15:51-52

I am so happy that Peace has come to all of you Alice.
Now, your embers are glowing new memories for all of us.

The insatiable need for quality in heaven has been met June 16th anew.

Prayers continue for your dad.

Oh what joy and what sorrow both at the same time.

Joy for your mother! But oh the big, big sorrow we feel in our heart because she won't be around person.

What a dearly saint that entered into heaven yesterday.

Our prayers are deeply with all of you.

I bet she's with my mom and Mrs. Stone and they're having Bible study with tea.

Praying for you, Alice.

Whew, maybe it's the pregnancy and maybe it's because I desperately miss my husband, but this is making me just cry.
At last there is peace and clarify and freedom from the pain

I pray the pain that you now have to carry is balanced with the peace that you are being carried by that same King.

Oh, Alice! I am crying with you. Losing a parent, no matter how old you are, is always painful. We know she is in Heaven, happy, whole, and with Jesus who is holding her close. We are left behind now, only for a little while longer! Loving you so much during this difficult time.

Mom and I always like the little saying that "Home is where your mother is." ((HUGS))
