Love & Pain

This last week was a hard week. I have not felt so much love and pain at the same time. My dear friend Debbie Benson passed away. I love her very much and even though I knew she was sick I never thought she'd leave this life so soon. I am so grateful that the Benson family shared their wonderful mother with me. I enjoyed many memories with that woman!

Debbie was such a wonderful woman of faith. She knew who Christ was and trusted in him. She lived everyday like it was the best day ever and made everybody's day special even when she wasn't feeling well. She was very courageous and her life is amazing to me. She had such a love for her life & her family. It helped me to appreciate my life even more.
Debbie's funeral was a true celebration of life and even though we are sad to see her leave.... We will see her again. I am so grateful for the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. Even though I am not a member of her family... I am grateful for the knowledge of our human family and the connection we all have as Spirit brothers and sisters. I am grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who allowed Debbie Benson to live her life and to bless me.

I love the Benson family and am so grateful for their wonderful friendship.

See ya later Debbie
I love you, always have always will.
