I thought I'd share this with all of you since this has been on my mind a lot and well, you guys are absolutely great!
A woman I have known my whole life but never have been too close to, Kay, from my church, lost her battle to lukemia on the twenty fourth of this month. She had been fighting for about a year, and it was a very hard time for everyone. She was SO big in our church, she did most of the children's stuff and directed all the musicals/plays for years and years and years. She had always been SO good at that, our church is known for its great musicals because of her.
I've never been really close to her, but I've known her forever. It still doesn't seem to have sunk in that she's gone. I can't really comprehend it. Throughout her sickness, I always thought, no, there's no way. She'll get better. She has to.
Unfortunately she only got worse and worse, and she finally passed away.
A few months ago at our church, there was a benefit for her to raise money for all of the medical expenses. I was there with my family, and she even came. She had to wear a mask and was there for only a short time. She didn't have any hair. She was very sick.
It was a silent auction with refreshments, and then there were preformances for her.
There was one with our previous senior pastor and his daughter singing a song they wrote for her, and it just breaks me heart. It's adorable, makes me cry so much. I had cried at the benefit.
I wanted to show you all the video of it, I hope you'll watch it and keep her in your thoughts, even though you didn't know her. She was a very, very strong and admirable woman, it's a real shame she's gone.

Sorry, this has just been on my mind.
I think anyone who has had similar experiences and lost loved ones to cancer can easily understand.
