A Loving Goodbye

Just received the word that a beloved aunt passed away unexpectedly. She was my wife's aunt, but I grew to love her and her husband quickly. They extended themselves to us when we moved to Colorado twenty years ago, making the move with three young kids so much easier on our young and innocent family.

So much has happened since then. He passed on ten years ago, as did their son, leaving a daughter behind them.

I know right now she is enjoying a much more peaceful life than the one she had here on earth. Because of her deep faith in a God who loves her, I can picture her sitting at Jesus' feet, no longer in pain, and enjoying the company of long departed family and friends.

Goodbye, Peggy. We will so miss you...
