This evening we got the news that our friend (who is has been in the hospital most of November) has taken a drastic turn for the worse. I wonder if she will still be with us when I awaken in the morning.
I want to take a day away from my planned post for her and her family. I know she would suggest I press on, by hey, this is still a post.
No matter if one has faith or not, no matter the religion, and regardless of geography, human nature is to feel a sense of sadness during times like this.
So on this night and through the day tomorrow, I hope and pray for peace and strength for her and her wonderful family.
Update 11:oo am EST Dec 1, 2011
We received word that our friend peacefully passed away at 8:15 am EST. I know no more pain and uncertainly, and in the spirit of the baptism that I believe, she is in a better place. I can’t imagine what her family is feeling after having their life turned upside down in a matter of 3 weeks. Please keep “the family of Frank’s friends” in your prayers. Thanks everyone for caring.
