Sean's mother's best friend, who battled with brain cancer for nearly 3 years, went to be with the Lord this morning. Her suffering is over, but there lies a rough road ahead for her loved ones who will miss her. I only met Charlie a few times, but her warmth and sweet presence left a mark. She was like an aunt to Sean because she was like a sister to his mother.
She was young. In her 50s. It is tragic, but the comfort that we have is that she loved our Lord. And what a blessing it is that her youngest son made it home in time to say goodbye. She is basking in the glory of the Lord. Her pain and suffering are over. She is home with our Heavenly Father who let the world borrow her for a while.
Psalm 116:15: "Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints."
