A Light Went out

Yesterday, this world grew a little dimmer as my beautiful friend, Roberta lost her battle with leukemia. My heart is heavy with grief-more for her husband and children-than for myself. She was one of those people whose life pointed heavenward. She was an incredible wife, mother, friend and servant.

I will miss her laugh and the smile that lit up her whole face. I will miss her insight into mothering and being God's servant.

I do not understand why He took her now. I know she is no longer in pain and is laughing with Jesus and the angels.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my cousin to cancer. It is hard to understand, but they would want us to carry on and remember them with happiness.
