Diane "Pug" MabreySeptember 8th, 1949 - May 21st, 2013
My Aunt Pug deserves an eloquently written tribute, but I am at a loss for words. I can tell you that she loved her family. I think her world revolved around them. I can tell you she had lots of friends. She was funny. She liked to laugh. I never saw her in a bad mood. She wasn't judgemental. She was always welcoming. She believed in God. She was in church every Sunday...same spot.
But what I can't tell you is why she's gone. I can't wrap my mind around it. She was only 63. A very young 63. She was a healthy, beautiful woman. One day she was well and the next day she wasn't. There were moments when we thought she was going to bounce right out of it, but she kept getting worse. I was praying for her. I knew she had lots of people praying for her. I tried to stay
positive even when the updates weren't hopeful. But she didn't get better. She died less than three months after contracting staph infection.
She leaves behind an plethora of family and friends who are struggling to understand what went wrong. They're struggling to understand how they can live in a world without Pug.
Please pray for her family...especially the immediate ones.
