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."

Sean and Stephanie,
We are so sorry about Charlie...we know she was an amazing woman just from the way Sean talked about her. It's hard to find something to say, but I wanted you guys to know we are thinking of you and praying for her family.

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
