Lost a Dear Friend

Friday, May 17, 2013

Our friend Loren never met a stranger. If he ever heard of anyone needing help he was the first one there. He was song leader at our church back in Missouri and had a beautiful tenor voice. He always met us with a smile a loved to joke and kid around. Several months ago Loren started having some health problems and the drs. in Mo. were unable to find the cause so they sent him to Mayo. He was diagnosed as having a rare disease called Amyloidosis. His bone marrow was producing an abnormal protein that was attacking his body. He had been in long term acute care in a NW Missouri hospital for two months and was actually starting to improve some. They gave him a new drug that Mayo recommended a few days ago and he had a reaction to it and in his weakened state his body couldn't bounce back. Loren is singing with the angels now. His pain is healed but there is a deep ache in the hearts of those who loved him. Rest in peace our dear friend.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend Loren. I know he's singing with the angels and watching over his loved ones on earth. That being said I know you and his loved ones will be missing him just the same.

    We think of our friends as always being a phone call away. The thought of losing them never crossing our minds. I'm so sorry you've lost your friend. May memories of them always be nearby.
