Feeling Sad Today

I am feeling a bit sad today. I feel sad after hearing the news that an old friend is now in hospice.
We had been neighbors when I first moved to Florida, and we shared many days together. She is a wonderful person and was always so good to our children. She is about ten years younger than me, and much too young to have to endure and suffer all that she is going through at the present moment.
Although she has had complications throughout her life due to illnesses, she has a strong faith in God and is such an inspiration to all the lives she continues to touch.
I am glad that Kelli continues to touch my life.
I will be visiting her within the next couple of days, and my son too asked to go along to see her. He has fond memories shared with her from when he was little.
It is so heartbreaking!
I spoke with her on the phone yesterday. She is in great pain.
Tumors wrapped around her spine, in her brain, and all over her body.
There is nothing they can do to help except manage her pain to make her comfortable.
I am sad. I pray, and will continue to pray that God will take care of her as he always has.
I know each of our lives have purpose, I know Kelli's life has great meaning to so many.
Blessings to you Kelli,
You mean so much to so many,
God Please wrap your arms around her and hold her tight, help her not to be afraid.
