Shortly after I began blogging a wonderful lady stopped by to make a comment. She said she would be back. That was over three years ago and our relationship has grown over those years. I've never seen her, but our family and hers has become ever closer through the years. We were planning a cross country drive from Phoenix to Atlanta and were planning on routing our trip so that we might get to visit this family for the first time. Those plans are on hold now as her daughter lost her battle with cancer last night. I had no idea when I set out on this venture that I would become so attached to the people I would meet; people whom I've never seen with my own eyes, but feel as if they live just down the street.

Please join with me in praying for this family in this time of great loss, as well as thanking God that we do not grieve without hope. Her daughter was a believer, and as such, though we grieve with our friend, we also look forward to that glorious reunion.

Thank you Danny!!! Tears are flowing as I type this. AMEN!!! I cannot tell you how close Mickey & I feel to you & Kathy. Kathy was the 3rd phone call I made upon our beloved Suzette rejoicing at the throne of her Savior and Lord.

I can only "amen" everything you've said, Danny.

Sweet Susan, our hearts were so sorrowful, truly, when we learned of Suzette's Heavenly entrance, but as Danny said, not without hope. We felt that lingering pain that makes us long for eternity with our Lord. We can't wait to share this season with you in person. We love you so.
