Farewell to a Dear Friend

I received news a few moments ago that a dear friend from church died this morning. This dear 90-year-old woman was an inspiration to all who took the time to get to know her. Her battle with cancer ended as she breathed her last moment on this earth, and entered into Jesus' presence the next.

She taught me the importance of being able to laugh at yourself and not to take things so seriously all the time. She found the joy and laughter in life. She had a wonderful love for the Lord, and incredible sense of humor.

She remained at home throughout her last days, keeping her independence. She was the type of woman that I want to grow up emulating. Even though my heart is sorrowful with missing this dear woman, I can't help but rejoice she is no longer suffering. She is walking the streets of heaven and celebrating.
