My God! Another friend of mine died last night. She was only in her early 50s. Survived by her husband and 4 young children. I was just talking with her on Friday. When I visited her, although she was experiencing discomfort, we were able to visit with each other. Then Saturday morning things took a turn. She slowly slipped into a coma. She was surrounded by family and friends all day yesterday. The room was packed. Finally, her immediate family were with her, playing guitar, singing songs and reading Bible passages, talking lovingly to her and praying. She slipped away peacefully at 11:45pm. I am going to miss her. I am going to miss her sharp wit. She could always make me smile and usually laugh. That was one of her gifts. Without fail, her tongue could twist a funny phrase and wry words. Bye Kerry! We loved you.
