On July 24, 2018 Jesus took my precious mommy ( @forgirlslikeyou ) off this earth. It happened within a couple hours and was so sudden. My heart hurts like never before. Comfort seems far. Anxiety is extremely present. It still feels like a dream that I will wake up from soon. I will remember those thirty minutes for the rest of my life. And I will remember the pain I felt as I found out. But the nurse repeated this phrase to me as I walked down that hospital hallway. And for some reason I couldn’t forget them. As they told me my mom had passed, these words continued and still continue to pound in my head. “I’m gonna tell you something I need you never to forget ok? You serve a big God. A big God. Don’t you ever forget that.” I serve a big God. Obstacles will be thrown at me but my God is still there. He knows what he’s doing and he’s got a plan. I say this not by sheer will but through faith. In the moment, his plan may seem outrageous and I may not understand. I continue to ask myself why me. Why did He choose my family. But I’m reminded He’s in control. So even as I weep and grieve, I can smile with joy because I’ll see her again. Even now she’s been throwing little winks at me. Please be praying for my family as my three younger sisters and I have lost our mommy and my dad has lost his best friend.❤️
On July 24, 2018, Jesus took my precious mother (forgirlslikeyou) from this land, ‘she said.’ It happened within a few hours and it was very surprising. My heart hurts as never before. Comfort seems far away. Anxiety is very present. It still looks like a dream I’ll wake up from soon. I will remember those thirty minutes I will remember the pain I felt as I discovered, but the nurse repeated this phrase to me while I was walking in the hospital entrance, and for what I could not forget. This mother has passed, and these words have continued and continued in my head. ‘I will tell you something I need you to never forget, you serve a great God, a great God, do not forget it.’
‘I serve a great God, the obstacles will come in front of me, but my God is still there, he knows what he is doing and he has a plan … I say this not by sheer will but through faith.’ His plan may sound terrible and I may not understand. Even when I cry and believe, I can smile cheerfully because I have so far been begging, so please pray for my family as my three younger sisters. I lost my mother and my father lost his best friend.
Dr. Evans and several other members of the family also shared the shocking news about social media.
‘My nephew Winter Evans Pittsyou died unexpectedly last night,’ Evans wrote. A beautiful mother of four daughters and a faithful wife, Venter loved her family with a deep commitment. Please keep her husband Jonathan with four young daughters and our entire family in your prayers. ‘
‘I’m a very ordinary person, but I’m in shock, I’m in pain and I love your prayers,’ said Evans son Anthony Evans. ‘Oh beautiful Wynter … I can not believe two weeks ago, we were at my birthday party and a few days ago We were facing the confrontation of your new home … Now we are no longer with us here suddenly, with tears, sadness, anger and confusion, and the only thing I can think clearly enough to say is that I promise that I will stay there forever for your husband and I will be the best uncle of my four perfect sister. Sometimes I do not know how I will recover from this but I will try to love him forever. ‘
(I’m generally a very private person but I’m in shock, hurting and would love your prayers….) Our beautiful Wynter…. I CANNOT BELIEVE that a couple weeks ago we were at my birthday party and a few days ago we were FaceTiming from your new house…. and now you are suddenly no longer here with us. Flying home felt like forever and I still can’t see clearly through my tears, sadness, anger and confusion. The one thing I can think clearly enough to say is that I promise you that I will forever be there for your husband and I’ll be the best uncle to my 4 perfect nieces. I don’t understand God at times and don’t know how I’ll recover from this one but I’m going to try. I love you forever Wynt.
‘I’m more sad than words to hear the sudden passage of my friend Winter Betts,’ said actress Candace Cameron Burrie, a friend of Winter, who died at an INTERFACE site. While I can trust that she walks the streets of gold in the sky and sits at the feet of Jesus, my heart grieves to take such a faithful and amazing example of an old woman, mother, wife and friend. For the time they spent together last month when she was visiting the city. (My heart) hurts a lot, I pray for her husband Jonathan and their four daughters Alina, Kaitlin, Cameron, and Olivia. ‘He said.
I’m saddened beyond words to hear of the sudden passing of my friend Wynter Pitts. She was a kind, loving and strong woman of God and while I can trust that she is walking streets of Gold in Heaven and sitting at the feet of Jesus, my heart grieves for taking such a faithful and incredible example of a Godly woman, mother and wife and friend. I’m so grateful for the time we spent together last month when she was in town visiting. I’m heart is hurting so much and I’m praying for her husband Jonathan and their four daughters Alena, Kaitlyn, Cameron and Olivia. @forgirlslikeyou @alenapitts #sheisyours A friend has set up a go fund me page for the family.
