Re: [MOL] Linda's Dad/Joicy It is never easy to say goodbye



Joicy, I don't know Linda, but I hope that you will tell her that she is in
my prayers.  It is never easy to say goodbye.  This cancering journey is so
hard on everyone who goes through it and the ones that are left behind
holding the bag with all the questions and holding the hearts with all the
sorrow certainly need our prayers; not only to get through the immediate
time of preparations and saying goodbye someone that they loved, but also to
comfort their hearts in the stillness of the time that will soon come to
pass when the work is done and the memories and sorrow of loss remain so
full in their heart.  I know that they will have many prayers lifted on
their behalf and that God will be with them through this time.

God Bless this family and you my friend.  It is good to see you again and
hear your heart.  Carla
