A Friend Gone On Ahead
I learned yesterday afternoon that the wife of an old friend of ours passed away on Tuesday. She was just 46 years old, and had battled cancer several times. Although we didn't get to know Susan very well before we moved away from SC many years ago, we have kept up with her and Billy through the years through mutual friends. We knew enough to know that they were among the handful of our high school friends who stayed faithful to church and were serving the Lord. Our prayers go out to Billy and his daughter Anna, a young college student. Although we are sure that Susan is now in Heaven and free from cancer, it will still be hard for them in the days ahead. The funeral is tomorrow afternoon. If they come to mind tomorrow, just mention them to the Lord; I know they'd appreciate it!
