rest in peace
It is with sadness that I share with you the news that my dear friend, Kathy, passed away peacefully Sunday morning. (Blogger has been uncooperative in allowing me to publish this post, so I apologize for its tardy appearance.) Although I was in the process of heading her way to see her one last time, I did not have a last chance to see her, which breaks my heart. My only consolation is that just prior to the time she took her last breath I had shared her story, and to some degree its impact on me in my life of faith, in my sermon. Perhaps that connection, in some galactic, spiritual way, was sufficient for her as a means of farewell for us. The memorial service will be held Thursday afternoon. Thank you all for your prayers and support through this time of waiting and watching. Her soul rests now in the joyful presence of God.
