Another Goodbye

Lately, death has become more tangible . . . unfortunately, more real to me.

I've been very lucky to have only attended three funerals in my lifetime. However, recently, it seems that death is lurking around.

My sweet Aunt Christine passed away on October 6. She fought an extremely hard battle against a rare brain disease, Pick's Disease. She held on for a long time. And for that I know her family is thankful. She is in a much better place now and her body is completely healed. And for that I am thankful.

So, goodbye Aunt Christine. Until we meet again.

(L-R: Aunt Christine, cousin Linde (Christine's daughter), me, my grandmother, Faymom and my sister, Rhea)

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've noticed that we're at the age where the generation before us is starting to pass on. It's difficult and sad, but happy when we know they have Jesus and a home waiting for them in heaven!

I am so sorry for your loss. Sending prayers out to you and your family. I just keep having the thought of her seeing Jesus face to face and it brings a smile to my face.

I am sorry about your loss. I just stumbled on your blog and the scripture on top was really just what I needed to read today. I will keep your family in my prayers.
