Sweet Carolyn
There will come a time that I will post some frivolous, random thoughts about something like cleaning out my refrigerator or taking a walk on a beautiful spring day. Yes, I have started posts about those very topics this week. I also have some great stories about the grands. You may read them some day. This will not be the day.

Today my heart is broken--once again. Beautiful, intelligent, talented, vivacious twelve-year-old Carolyn lost her battle with cancer and went home to heaven. Carolyn is the daughter of my nephew, Jeff; granddaughter of my sister, Barbara. She fought valiantly for two and a half years. Now she is healed and is with Jesus, who she loves! (I posted about Carolyn here. I did not continue to relay information about her progress because of privacy issues.)

I will be traveling to Texas for this funeral--a trip I have made too many times in the past few years. Please remember my family as we--again--reme
mber and honor a loved one, celebrate a life lived well, and rejoice in the power of saving grace.

Please remember Carolyn's sweet family. Her parents and her younger brother could certainly use some prayers for peace and comfort at this time.

Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Myrna, I knew this was coming but I am still so sorry to hear it. Again, we grieve, but not without hope.

I will continue to pray for you all. Travel safely.

So sorry to hear this Myrna. We will continue to pray for her family. Our niece (Sophia) has been fighting cancer again too. They removed the new brain tumor 3 weeks ago and she is waiting to start radiation.

My goodness, your family has certainly been hit hard lately. I know it will be sad, but also a celebration of her being in a MUCH better place!
