My Friend Michelle has passed on



If you've been reading my blog over the past months you've heard me mention my friend Michelle T. Unfortunately she lost her battle with Cancer on Jan 14, 2010. Below are the comments left by her husband on Michelle's facebook page.



1/14/09 from her husband

"Dear friends, my dear wife and soulmate past away early this afternoon. We have been so moved by your warm remarks and prayers. Michelle was a very special person to me and my family but also to all who knew her. We rejoice in her walking with Christ but it is our humanity that causes us to mourn the separation. The last words I said to her were "See you Later" because I will see her again someday. She is walking with our Lord Jesus Christ and will no longer know the wrath of disease and the other bad things this world has. Heaven has gained a shining star today. Please continue your prayers for our family as we try to adjust to a new life. We ask you to give God the Glory, his ways are a mystery to us sometimes but His way is always right no matter how much it may hurt. Michelle leaves behind a new cancer ministry at our church which will be off and running this month. While I hate no person, this disease called cancer has gained a bitter enemy. I will do whatever I can to carry on the fight using God's love as a sword. We will be posting funeral plans when they become finalized. Once again bless you all for all the prayers. We love you all and please give the ones you love a hug for us today. God is Good!"

Margo, Thank you for sharing his beautiful words. That you can feel God and his love while experiencing the greatest pain of your life is truly one of His miracles. I know, because the night my first husband died, He was there and there was comfort in the midst of excruciating pain. I will continue to pray for comfort for them and for you.

Margo, I'm so sorry. It's hard. My junking friend, Lena, passed away last fall. I actually mentioned her in my blog today. Dreamed about her last night. We'll always miss our friends.

So sorry to hear of your friends passing. I know it won't be easy on her family, but it's good to know she's with her Savior.

craftymarta said...

Margo, I'm pissed. I never hate anything before but I hate cancer. We lost Tina Wright a couple of weeks ago and now Michelle, and the list goes on and on. I have been crying, for Haiti, for my friends, not a pitty party, just hurt, not without hope, not without asking God for His mercy upon all of us. God is good and He is good all the time. Maybe all this sorrow have a purpose, I want to hug my loved ones and let them now how much I love them. I want to live life to the fullest and follow God's will for my life. Thank you for letting us know. To Michelle precious family, my prayers for you are before God's throne. Blessings, Marta.

Margo, so sorry to hear the news. But to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, so we know where she is. I just read these words today from Isaiah, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." Big hugs to you.
