  • Loss of a good friend

    Yesterday evening we received a call telling us a good friend has passed away about 1/2 before. She had suffered from Cancer for so many years, but would not give up smoking. About 1 1/2 months ago we received an invite to a party from her...turns out it was her idea of the wake she wanted to have. She was under Hospice care then and knew she didn't have much longer to live, so she wanted to see all her friends in one place once again. There must have been 150 people at the park that day...Amber was having a hard time that day but did her best. Two weeks ago she made her husband take her Christmas shopping...she was in wheel chair and was pretty much out of it, but gifts had to be purchased from Christmas she said. We knew she was holding on for Christmas with her two grown daughters and last night about 7:30 she went home to be with the LORD. She will be missed...please remember her in your prayers.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend however she is no longer suffering. Now is the time for healing. I will add the family to my prayer list.

        Larry sorry to read about your friend. She sounds quite a character.
        Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

          Yes, Amber was always setting there in the comfy chair at all our bar-b-q's (and we have several during the year) no matter how bad she felt. Her husband and a few friends would get together and play music and she would always be setting up front singing along. In the several years we knew her, I can't remember a party or meeting that she wasn't sick. I remember the first time I saw her with grown in hair...I didn't know who she was at first. The following day after a party, she was always the first person to call, thanking us so much for the party...I know she is in so much better off a and pain free now, but she is so missed. Thanks for the kind words.

                I'm sorry to hear about your friend. It sounds like she will be remembered with love and laughter. Can't ask for more than that.

                  Seems like she will be missed but really lived while she was here. Prayers abound.

                  I WAITED patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
                  He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
                  And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
                  He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
                  Many will see and fear
                  And will trust in the Lord.
                  Psalm 40:1-3

                    What a special lady! And how comforting to be able to honor her life while she was there to enjoy the tribute. You're fortunate to have known such a person, and to have such fond memories to temper your sorrow at her death.

                            Glad things worked out.

                            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                            So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
