A Sad Goodbye

Today my wonderful Aunt Marilyn passed away after her 5 year battle with cancer. She had been in the hospital for the past 5 weeks and we were told last week that things had taken a turn for the worse. We had no idea that we would only have her for a few more days. My heart is breaking as I type this because I will miss her so much. She adored my brother and I and just could not get enough of Evan and Lillie. She loved how Evan would say her name and always wanted to know everything that he was saying (she was a speech therapist)! Please pray for my Mom, Aunt Sandy, and Granny because they are all having a hard time letting her go. Most of all she had a son who just turned 16. I know that he is heart broken. I just pray that he will be able to get through this time. To all of us there will never be anyone like her! A huge piece of my family is now missing. Her funeral is Sat and I know it will be one of the hardest days to get through.

I also want to say thank you to all of my wonderful friends who have given me a shoulder to cry on and have offered to do anything to help out. I think that everyone we know has offered to keep Evan and Lillie! I feel so blessed to have such truely amazing friends!

One last thing please pray for my friend Heather. She found out a few weeks ago that she has skin cancer. She is having surgery early tomorrow morning. Pray that the cancer has not spread anywhere else.

Our hearts are heavy huh! I know the Lord is holding your Aunt in his arms about now and she is pain free. That's a wonderful picture. I'll be glad to help you out in anyway that I can. Just let me know and don't be afraid to holler! Tell your family we're praying for you guys.
