I would like all of you to know that Helen Louise Whitfield Davis (77) took her last sweet breath and passed from the arms of her loving family into the arms of her Lord Jesus at 1:43 am on Friday, April 3, 2009.
Harvey, her husband and her two daughters, Pam and Kristi were with her when she died. It was so beautiful and peaceful with no pain. Mom simply breathed one time and was gone the next moment. Mom and Daddy would have been married 58 years on April 27, 2009.
I’ll write more later.
Thank you all for being with me every step of this journey.
Smiling through my tears…

I know your mom can feel the love that surrounds her, everyone should be accompanied to the end with such comfort.

I am new to this site but am praying for you and your family. I sat with my Mom when she passed away 10 years ago (not from cc). The last thing I did was recite the Lords prayer and tell her it was OK to go. She took her last breath and was gone. I am crying as I type, remembering… As a Mom myself and having CC I know how I would feel having my children there with me when the Lord calls me home. I believe she knows you are with her and that it means the world to her. She is blessed to have such a loving daughter. May God Bless your entire family as you go through this most difficult time. My prayers are with you,

I have been thinking of you a lot lately. I am deeply sorry for you and your family. Even if we know it is inevitable, when it is no longer months or weeks, but days before our loved ones depart, the finality of it seems unbarable. My thought and prayers are with your mother, you and your family.
I pray for your strength and courage

It’s now 11:00. Mom’s breathing is becoming more shallow and her extremities are becoming cool. She thankfully is in absolutely no pain that I can detect. No restlessness, no grimacing – just quietness except for her breath sounds.
I’ve stroked her hands and told her how much I love her and that it’s ok to go. I hope and pray it will be soon.
I’m so comforted knowing you all are still with me on this journey. Seeing her in this state is bittersweet – knowing that I’m really losing her, but thanking God she is passing peacefully into his loving arms.
Please keep us in your prayers.

I have been down that road, too, and I know how your heart must be breaking. I wish I could make things better for you. Your mom is in my thoughts and prayers.
