Meanwhile, Kreger said another sister, Suzanne Smith, was with their mother at her home. Edna Kreger had dementia and was under hospice care.

Kreger said Smith woke up early Saturday morning and strongly felt the presence of their father.

Later that morning, she took a shower. When she got out, Edna Kreger had died.

“We’re not approaching this as an event to be mourned,” Kreger said.. “It’s an event to be celebrated. As Christians, we believe life has not ended. It’s just changed.”
