In our lives there is Sweetness and there is Sadness. For today, it is bitter-sweet.
My Precious Friend Narveen passed away last night from ovarian cancer. She fought the fight for 4 years. I was by her side, in her home along with her family. What a privilege to be there when she left this earth to enter into eternity. I thank the dear Lord for allowing me to know one of His precious daughters and look forward to the day I will see her again. She promised me she would be waiting for me when I come! Narveen taught me to never doubt the Lord and
she loved unconditionally.
There are angels among us, and Narveen was one!
I will miss my angel friend! xo
~
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your
prayers, love & support! xo

Sweet Maryjane,

I know how much love you had for your dear friend and how important it was for both of you that you could be with her. You are such a comfort to everyone and I can only imagine the comfort you were to all of her family.

You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers during the next few weeks as all of you adjust to this new life.

Heidi said...

I admire you for being there through thick and thin with her! She loved you and I enjoyed all your silly stories from visits with your buddy. She was a fighter... your angel will continue to bless your life. I know you are aching and that makes me sad. I believe you when you said she'll be there waiting for you......... and you'll be looking for her! You were such a comfort to her these last days of her journey on earth... I believe you were her angel. xo

Oh, Maryjane, so sorry to hear of your friends passing. At church this Sunday, our pastor told us about a 10 year old who has ovarian cancer!! She has been very sick and is on our prayer list. Such a young age, I have never heard of this young before. I also need your advice and opinion on my latest post. Could you hop over and leave a comment? Thanks so much, my prayers are with you, blessings, Kathleen

He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.

I'm so sorry about your friend.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend. Yes, it is a blessing to be there at the very end when they go home to heaven. I was with my father when he died, and for me it was a very spiritual experience, and something that I counted as an honor. I'm sure your friend was comforted beyond measure by your presence.

Maryjane, it's taken me a little while to write, but I want to express my deepest sympathy to you. I know how heartbreaking it is to lose a dear, life long friend. God's Grace and the knowledge that our loved one will be waiting for us at the Gates when it is our time to make the journey into eternity with Christ, gave us the strength to get through the pain. It's been nearly eight years now and though we will never entirely stop grieving, we can think of him with laughter. You will be able to remember your dear frind with more joy than pain one day. I am so sorry that you lost your friend, Maryjane. She must have been a very special person to evoke such love and devotion from so many loved ones. One very sad part of life is the loss we all experience, but one tremendous joy is knowing what awaits us as Believers in Heaven!
XOXO Kathy
