On November 1, 1983 as the family was preparing for bed, DeVoria discovered her mom's blessed oil. As it dripped from her hands she told her mom, "Let me pray for you." She placed her oily hands on her mom's head and said, "Lord Jesus take away the pain in Jesus' name." She then chose to wear her flame retardant Minnie Mouse pajamas. At approx. 11:10 a.m. the fire came and DeVoria went to be with the Lord. No one knew this was to be... except the Lord, DeVoria and perhaps, even me.
