prayers for the family...

Mary passed away last evening around supper time...
from cancer...

she was so amazing...
a grade school teacher here...
friend to all...
cheery...
upbeat...
helpful to anyone who needed it...
an inspiration of what we all should be...

her pain is gone...
taken away...
but her family's just started...
and her friends...
her past students...

their battle cry was MARY STRONG...
so, if you could take a moment and whisper that phrase...
God will know who you are talking about and will take care of the rest...

she was diagnosed about 18 months ago...
I think...
she was here, with her husband, Bob...
picking persimmons...
I gave them all we had...
she was having trouble with her knee...
known of us even thought of cancer...
she was a runner...
we thought injury...

the last time I saw her...
she was bringing some things in for the toy drive at the fire station...
and she hugged me with all that was in her...
and SHE blessed me...
and told me for my loving and giving heart...

she touched everyone...
she touched us all...
she will be missed...
and remembered...

How sad it is to lose a dear and sweet friend. I hate when people go way before they're time.
Prayers are said for her grieving family... and you too.

Hope you have a lovely 4th. of July weekend.
