Our loss, Heavens Gain.
She reached her Goal.

February 2, 2018
We can still see Aunt Frannie smiling as she hoisted herself up into our Explorer saying, "The old gray mare ain't what she used to be, but she can still kick up her heels." Now in Heaven, she's even better and more alive than ever.
Aunt Frannie loved to smile and laugh and show others the love of Jesus. She also loved to read and write poems, hymns and Bible verses that spoke of Jesus' love for us.
Frannie was no stranger to adversity.
She had lost a child, and was widowed.
Through it all, Frannie learned to trust in Jesus and to depend upon His word. God gives His toughest battles to His strongest soldiers.
Frannie fought many battles on her knees as a prayer warrior for Christ.
2 Timothy 4:7 says, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord the Righteous Judge will award to me on that day--and not only to me but also to all who have longed for His appearing."
Our parents would want us to fix our eyes on Jesus, and to receive and pass on the baton of faith and family to the next generation.
Although Aunt Frannie wasn't our mother or grandmother, she conveyed the love and nurture of a mother, and of Jesus, to those of us who were left here without parents and grandparents; and as her nieces and nephews, we arise and call her blessed in the words of Proverbs 31.
God tells us in James 1:27 that "Pure and undefiled religion is this, to look after widows and orphans" and that's what Aunt Frannie tried to do for others, and we hope that's what we did for her too.
Our family chain is broken and nothing feels the same
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Jesus loves you and so do we,
the nieces and nephews of Frances (DeBoer) Broekhuis.
