Saying Goodbye to a LOVED ONE

It's been a hard week at our house. On Friday Aug 29th my Aunt Carolyn lost her battle with cancer and went home to Jesus. She fought the battle long and hard with her family by her side and her faith sustaining her day by day. She was a mother, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, mentor, and friend to so many. She lived her life to the fullest and was always a source of wisdom, love and laughter where ever she went. We will miss her dearly and will remember her always!! These are just a few of the words that I had written months ago that describe our Aunt Carolyn who will be forever in our hearts.

Dearest Katie,

This has been a season of loss, sometimes the resevoir of grief runs deep because our lives have been touched so wonderfully by these precious lives. Your aunt sounded like a special lady. My prayers are with you in this time of waiting and loss. You are in a place where your hands lay open before the Lord - no holding onto expectations, circumstances, houses, people - just offering up the sacrifice of trust and faith, and sometimes tears.
