Today is a very sad day. I used to fly to Kelowna to visit a very special friend once or twice a year. However, Bonnie L-W was diagnosed with lung cancer and liver cancer in September of 2011. She was given chemotherapy treatments which messed up her mind. Her platelet count was too low to have the last 2 treatments and she was my friend again (her thoughts were clear). We had really good chats for a couple of weeks.
Last week she was admitted to hospice for care. Her body was shutting down. The hospice people were very good to her and her family. Her kids (now young adults) were with her when she passed away (they held her hands while she went to sleep). She passed away peacefully.
Her pain is gone and her family's pain has begun. I just pray that the Lord will comfort them through this very difficult time. Bonnie L-W was a very vibrant Christian lady.
A new phase has begun in her family's life.
