Most of my day was spent at the church building doing whatever I could find to do to help. Any pan I could find to wash. Any tea I could pour. We had a funeral service for one of our members who was such a special man. A very kind, sweet, and loving man who left his sweet family too soon after a very brave fight with cancer. They lovingly had been caring for him these past few months while he was in hospice care at their home. It 's hard to know what to say. Even for someone like me who always says whatever. He will truly be missed by lots and lots of friends and all his family, but tonight when his sweet wife lies down I know that a tear will fall as she realizes that there are many long and lonely nights ahead while God heals her broken heart. Join me and pray for her as you pray. Her name is Kathryn and she is brokenhearted. As are their children. Cancer is from Satan.

Your post brought tears to my eyes. I totally agree with your sentiments about cancer. I know that this family appreciated what you did to help them. I am not looking forward to the Holidays this year because I know how hard it is going be without my Mama. Yet, I know that I need to try to find the joy for my daughters' sake. I will pray for your friends.

Lynn,
I hate cancer, too. We were so saddened to hear of Nat's death..tho he did win the victory. Please give Kathryn a kiss from us. She is so precious. I hate for her to hurt so bad. Love, Vicky

I just finished a book called "90 Minutes in Heaven". It is a really sweet reminder of how wonderful our true home is. I know its never easy to say good bye, but it helps when we know where we're going, and where they are! Love you all!
