Comforting Our Friend's Daughter and Each Other
Wednesday, May 11, 2011
Last night our whole group met at my friend's home at the daughter's request. We shared passages from the Bible, and many memories of our friend. Now we are helping them plan the viewing and funeral arrangements at our church for about 400 to 500 people. Her mother was an accountant and owner of a scrap metal recycling center. She touched many lives with her generosity, love, and spirit for enjoying life.
Evidently they found out last January that she had the tumor in her back. She was determined to fight it her daughter explained. But she was at peace with her faith in her life with the Lord, so she could accept it.
Her daughter's mother-in-law to be has been with our friend for over 2 years as a work partner, and really part of her family, and a best friend. She was really taking such good care of her daughter.
I was touched by all of the comfort so many spark friends sent to me in their comments on my previous blog and spark messages.
