Dear Healingwell Family,
I am doing well carried by rivers of grace and the prayers of God's people.
We had two Memorial services for Ron, one at our church and the other at the Mission where he served his God. I sang his favorite song "It is Finished" and several people gave testimonies including our son, who called him his hero. It was a hard thing for Jim to do and I was so proud of him.
I told about how he used to turn out the lights on me and hide in the house at bedtime and jump out at me. He never got tired of this game and always managed to wait just long enough between times to catch me unawares. Our kids used to lay in their beds and giggle because they knew I was going to scream.
I told everyone that he faced death with patience, courage, and faith. I always tell people he was a patient man because he married me when I was a heathen and I'm still alive.
I told them at the service that one day when I was taking care of him I became sick and he knew it. He called me in beside his hospital bed and reached through the rail to lay his hand on me and pray for me!
I miss him but I would not call him back to a body that just wouldn't work anymore. My husband has graduated and gone home and I will join him one day. In the mean time I have the promise I made to him to keep. I will continue our ministry at the mission.
Bless you all.....Chuzzle.....Linda
