“Grow old with me the best is yet to be…” We were not at the old stage but looking forward to more years of the best before we grew old together… until Stage III Esophageal cancer nixed the grow old with me part.
CANCER DID NOT ALLOW US TO DICTATE OUR FUTURE. WITH GOD’S HELP WE CHOSE HOW TO FACE IT AND CARRIED ONE ANOTHER’S BURDENS SO FULFILLING THE LAW OF CHRIST” Galatians 6
Our love grew as did our trust in God, who was our strength and refuge when cancer tested our courage and faith.
“THE LAST OF LIFE- FOR WHICH THE FIRST WAS MADE, OUR TIMES WERE IN HIS HANDS”
DIAGNOSIS – TERMINAL – WE CHOSE TO LIVE EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY
BEFORE WE FACED THAT FINALE JOURNEY
WE TRAVELED HOME TO SWITZERLAND ONE LAST TIME,
AND RETURNED HOME FOR OUR SON’S WEDDING, BELLS RANG, AND SUNSHINE BLESSED THE DAY
“IT’S TIME I ASKED MY WIFE TO DANCE.”
HE TOOK MY HAND AND PUT HIS ARM AROUND MY WAIST. ALONE, WE DANCED TO, AUTUMN LEAVES. IT WAS OUR LAST.
