Saturday June 21, at 6 in the morning, our friend Lois went home to be with Jesus. I was with her till 4am and then I left because I knew time was near. She took time Friday afternoon to say goodbye to all her children and to her husband Robin. She had no regrets. She was funny and feisty till the end and for me personally it's a loss of a beautiful friend. I loved her.
Her funeral is on Tuesday. I have the privilege to make some scrapbook pages of her to display in church. I count it as a great honor.
to EACH and EVERY friend out there who said a prayer or a happy thought for her, THANK YOU. For each and every one of you who took time to make her a card, THANK YOU. Her only daughter, Rachel, love and cherishes each and every card. I know it will be a keepsake for her for the rest of her life.
If you want to remember Lois, here is a little video reminder.
If you want to see all her cards, this link will take you to the card gallery.
If you want to send her family a card, please do so.
In the end she was filled with God's peace. She knew where she was going to. She new what and who waited for her. She told us that she saw Jesus and the streets of gold. Maybe it's a reminder that we all can be sure where we will end up... we just have to make that decision here and now. John 14: 5 Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, so how can we know the way? 6 Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.
Phil 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.
See you in a day or two.
I didn't forget about Friday's rak.
Love and a kiss
