From Val Roberts-Toler, pastor of the First UMC of Willimantic / Mansfield Center churches, - My mother passed away at 8:15 tonight (Sunday, April 24). She was surrounded by her family. About 7:30 there was a beautiful double rainbow that stretched over the farm and the sky was brilliant and amazing. After she passed there was a beautiful golden red full moon. Printice led us in the 23rd Psalm and in prayer around her bed. We are planning the funeral around my brother-in-law getting back from Italy -- probably not until Thursday with calling hours Wednesday. My Dad was very strong and we held each other up and we held each other tight. And God held us all close.
