My point is... Vigil

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Still the vigil continued.

The unending and unrelenting spiral of love and family is the core of her legacy that, even in her last moments, is the message she leaves to those left behind. Grasping their hands in hers, she whispers the  words they know and dread, as they wait for her pain and suffering to end. The question of when is held only by the Giver of Life and the care and prayers ask only for mercy. The vigil continues, with hope only for her peace and comfort. But the strength exemplified by her life, the hope that surged through her soul, and the love that surpassed all trials is the foundation of what will carry  her loved ones through this vigil.
