Hi folks No it isn't me, as much as perhaps some of you might wish. I have a member of my congregation who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer this week. She isn't coping well with it at all. I have had other folks in the same boat in the past who have dealt with it much better than this lady is. She is taking the news as hard as anyone I have ever known. At any rate, she has about a year with radiation, less without according to the docs. She just had a granddaughter born less than a month ago that she hasn't seen yet. Her son lives on the west coast, and they are coming in a couple of weeks. Any way, any of you folks have any words of wisdom for a fellow trying to give this dear lady some comfort? I went to visit last night and she asked me to hold her services, and gave me instructions, so she is dealing with it to some extent. Perhaps my view is clouded by my grandmother's passing. I was with her, she had been incoherent for weeks, and was begging for me to come home, (I was in Germany at the time). I got there, she knew me, first person she had recognized for a couple of weeks, opened her eyes, and told me how pleasant it was to die, closed her eyes and passed on a few minutes later. Jeff.
