Difficult Week Finally Over
Last week has been one of the most difficult of my life. My brother, Russell had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer last September, and although he had made a miraculous recovery from his initial hospitalization and rehabilitation, I knew his time on earth was limited. Shortly after I received the word that Russell had been transferred to inpatient hospice, my husband's brother-in-law, Randy, suffered a massive stroke while on vacation in South Florida.
Subsequently, both Russell and Randy passed away with a five day period. I attended two memorial services last week. One on Wednesday and one on Saturday. I was comforted by the words of a speaker at Randy's service who said," those who die in Christ do not really die. They simply change addresses". I look forward to being reunited with both Russell and Randy at the appointed time. While I will miss them, I am thankful for the time we had together and look forward to seeing them again one day.
