For My Friend

For my friend Evelyn:
You left the world today. It seems a sadder place, knowing that you aren't under the same sky with us anymore. I find comfort in knowing that you are with The Creator. You are in no more pain, and that God does indeed hold our lives in His hands.
As Kathy Troccoli states so well for us in one of her songs....
"But there will be a time,
When I'll see your face,
And I'll hear your voice.
And there we will laugh again.
No more tears to cry,
'Cause we'll have forever.
But I'll say good-bye for now."

Evelyn, You are loved, and we will miss you! To Jeff, Miranda, and Jeremy: you are in our thoughts and prayers.

My heart is breaking for this family too.... she was our dog's groomer and very active and dependable in our church kitchen, always willing and eager to help out. I will greatly miss Evelyn as well.
