This evening the faithfulness of Jesus was displayed. He presented another Saint faultless before the Father. Our mother, Ruth B. White, passed from this Earth to the physical presence of Jesus, who is her Life. As she took her last breath a peace came over her countenance and we knew that she was with Jesus. Looking at the peace on her face, we knew that she experienced total Joy, Peace and Rest that only He can provide. It’s bittersweet, but knowing that she is now experiencing Life better than anything here is our comfort. There will be tears, but there’s an unexplainable peace that is our strength.
The family would like to give a shout out to the medical staff at Penn State Health and Red Rose Cardiology for the last 7+ years we had with Mom. Also to Dr. Jantze of Penn State Health for his exceptional care to both Mom and the family during the past week. Then a special shout out to the staff at Penn Medicine LGH where Mom spent her last week. The team on 6 East was especially caring as she received end of life care and treatment. We saw first hand how well the team of support staff was to Mom and our family.
