Why does it take a tragedy to post new? Not that anyone will read this anyway. Oh well.
My dad's sister died last night. She had been fighting cancer for a few years and now she is with Jesus. I can say that because I truly believe she is. She loved the Lord and served Him with her life for as long as I knew her. My granny said the same thing when I talked to her. I will miss her. Even though I'm in TN and she was in OK I will miss her. Miss knowing that I could just pick up the phone and call or write an email. So the mourning isn't really for her, she is much, much better off. The mourning is for those of us who are left behind and have to wait to see her again. Because we lived so far apart (and because I have 9 children) I didn't get to see her as often as I would have liked. I hadn't seen her in two and a half years. We pretty much had to keep in touch by letters, emails, and phone. But I'm kind of glad I'll remember her as she was before. In the end she was so weak she hadn't eaten for two months and couldn't even pick up the phone and talk. I'm glad I didn't have to see her like that. In my mind she is walking towards me with a welcoming, loving smile and ready to give me a big hug. She never married and never had children, my grandpa had gone on before 13 years ago, but my granny who lived with her and my dad, aunts and uncles will certainly miss her very much also. Well, I feel better now that I have written this out.
