Laughter and tears....

Karena has now lapsed into unconsciousness....but we are told that she can still hear us so we have been chatting to her and reminiscing at her bedside over some of the crazy things we have done as a family. There's been some tears but also some laughter at some of the things we have recalled.
It's very peaceful beside her; and I can only conclude that the Lord has her cradled in His arms, ready to take her home.
We have all said goodbye, and told her that she is free to go with our blessing as soon as it's time.
The Lord will call her home quite soon now.
In the meantime it's sleepover night again so the DVD is on and the sleeping bags are out.....

Psalm 62:1-2
My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation
He is my fortress, I shall never be shaken


  1. Give Karena a kiss from me Craig and tell her she will always be in my heart.
    You're all so very brave.

  2. I'm sure we are all giving you a virtual hug right now. Thinking of you all. xx

  3. Nite, nite Karena. You have been an inspiration to us all. We won't forget you.
    To Craig and EBO - keep strong, we love you all so much. Our prayers are with you.
    Lots of love to Karena and all from
    M & D xxxxx

  4. So glad that the
    "peace of God which surpasses ALL understanding " is holding you close...

    love and prayers...

  5. I'm so sorry it's been so long since we've seen you. But we have been following recent events with mounting consternation and sadness. Please do know that we are praying for you all at this terrible time. And, if she can register the information, please give Karena our love.

    Michael and Ann (Pearse)

  6. Sleep well Karena, lots of love to you and seeya later! For we surely will all see each other again. You are alive with Him who holds your family. Take care of yourselves Family Mackay. With much love and prayers for you all. xx

  7. I can only imagine the beautiful sounds and sights of Heaven that are floating by Karena right at this moment. While I am assured of her joyful and exciting future with our King, my heart is breaking for you all. The Ropers love you, our family in Jesus xxx

  8. To be, or not to be: that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;.........
    With love to you all.

  9. I read something before and thought it was a new update but it wasnt and Im sorry I didnt see this one. I pray that the angels attend to her and she has peace x

  10. I have been following Karena's journey for sometime through her extended family across the sea. I am sadden when I think about a world without Karena. Please give her a kiss and a hug from us and tell her that we love her very much.
