My Mother (Jeanette Summerlin) 1930-2011


On Friday, May 13, 2011, my mom went home to be with her Lord and Savior.

She was a woman of great love, patience, humility, selflessness, etc., etc., etc. Similar adjectives could continue indefinitely. I've never met another like her and, no doubt, ever will. She loved her children like no other. She loved her husband like no other. But most of all, she loved the Lord with every ounce of her being.

She had battled Alzheimer's for many years. We had expected this horrible disease to rob her of all she was  as it had already taken so much from her. But this was not to be! Praise God, she slipped peacefully from this world to the one she had been living for her entire life. Heaven opened its gates and welcomed her home!

Please continue to remember us in your thoughts and prayers as we come to accept life without the most precious treasure we have ever known, our mother.

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear mother. I'm sure this is a very difficult time for you. May all of your sweet memories bring you some comfort and peace.
