My dear friend is on her way Home. She is in Dallas, at her daughter's home. She went there a month ago, with the plan to have radiation treatment for cancer, but her health has failed and now she is hospice. I really want to see her to say good-bye (for now!) and so I will be traveling there next week, God willing.
It seems strange to say good-bye to a dear friend this way. We have talked about it on the phone, though. We know it is good-bye. She is ready to see the Lord and I know we will all be reunited one day. Still...it is going to be tough. She is a wonderful woman and so strong in her faith. We lived together for a few years and those were some of the best years of my life. It was a total party!! Her kids have all been in to see her. I can't imagine how hard this is for them, and her grandchildren. It will be a long drive to Dallas. But well worth it.
