Such very sad news


My wonderful childhood friend passed away this week. She was one of those people who always looked for the good in people. I don't believe I every heard her say a mean word....and I have known her since first grade.
Ruth,(Weaver), was a girl that hung out at my home throughout high school. No, she had a wonderful mom and dad, she hung out because we had such fun together.
When I went off to college, she went to work in a factory and although we didn't live far apart, we didn't talk often. When I would run into her it was just like old times and we would laugh and talk about all memories and new families.
Ruth had been battling breast cancer that had spread throughout her body. I knew she was sick, I knew that things didn't look good...but I was praying for healing...I was praying for what I wanted to happen. God had other plans for her.
She is leaving behind a husband and 13 year old daughter...they will miss her so much...and so will I.
I knew that if I ever needed anything, she would be there without question...a true lifetime friend. There are many broken hearts over our loss...prayers that were answered in unexpected ways. However, I know she is now pain free living with Jesus in her new mansion, waiting for her family and friends to join her... I miss her already. May God bless and keep your family while you are gone.... With fond memories, Dianntha

I am so sorry Dianntha - I can feel your hurt! I just lost a dear childhood friend this past fall from a blood clot after a simple surgery.
And we had the same relationship.
Big hugs,
Karen
