To her family, a very precious jewel has been taken from us; but we must trust that God knew what was best. May you find peace and comfort in God's love. I am truly saddened by her death, knowing that her writing will be no more. We never met but her columns drew me to correspond periodically by email. She brought comfort to families and firends, and a sense of knowing those she wrote about. I have missed her columns and a glimpse of a guest column always gave me a smile. May she find rest in the loving arms of our Savior.
