Funeral to do.

I have a funeral to do Tuesday. She is a lady who was 82 years old. She had Lou Gerigs disease. Her daughter is a member of my church and I have known her for quite some time. I spent about 2 hours Monday night, beside her bed and had prayer with her family. She was a wonderful mom.
It is always difficult to do funerals since my son was killed in 2005 but, I do them out of love and compassion for people. I am truly blessed beyond measure. Through it all, the Lord has been good to me. I just want to be a messenger of encouragement and of comfort to this family.

It is very nice that the Lord still moves you to be so compassionate of others, in this case to do a gentle lady\'s funeral after all the other funerals you\'ve done. God bless you.

I am glad you were there for her. There is always a silver lineing in every dark cloud if you look hard enough.
