As most of you know I lost my lovely wife to Cancer nearly 3 years ago. During her valiant 6 month fight there was one woman who was there for her at every step of the way. This was my Pastor's wife, Linda. She visited the house and the hospital and along with Pastor was the first to arrive at the home when my Gretchen passed away. Approximately 2 months after Gretchen passed away on a Sunday morning Pastor grabbed me as I was entering the church. He escorted me to a quiet corner of the church and there told me his wife, Linda, had breast cancer. For the first time in my life I saw fear in a man's eyes. I knew exactly what he was going through and couldn't help. He told me he wanted me to be the first before he told the congregation and this has bonded us ever since.
We have talked and I have listened while he and Linda fought the breast cancer with surgery, chemo and radiation. We thought that through the Grace of God we had it whipped. Needless to say I was greatly saddened when my good friend and Pastor called early Monday morning to tell me the cancer has spread to Linda's bones. She has several areas throughout her body where the cancer has been detected. Prognosis a this time I don't know. I only know this woman was a rock for me and Gretchen and all the while she was there consoling us the vicious demon was coursing through her body.
These things as we all know are God's will and for what reason it is not for us to question. For this reason I am asking any and all readers of this post to please pass this along to your friends and please prayer for Linda.She is a most wonderful and good Christian woman as I know that walks the face of this earth.
God Bless you all,
